Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright, now a Republican candidate for Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District, plans to defend his candidacy at an ALGOP meeting on Saturday after facing ballot access challenges accusing him of opportunistically switching parties.
Two complaints were recently filed against him, Bright says.
One of those complaints was filed by Houston County Commissioner Brandon Shoupe, alleging that Bright only wanted to run as a Republican because “he knows difficulty first-hand the difficulty of getting elected to Congress as a Democrat in the Second Congressional District,” according to a copy of the complaint Shoupe posted on Twitter last week.
