From the Office of Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – On Tuesday, voters in parts of Etowah and St. Clair Counties voted to elect Mack Butler to be the Republican nominee for House District 30. The seat was vacated by Blaine Galliher (R-Rainbow City) after he accepted a position in the Bentley administration as the Governor’s legislative director. Small business owner Mack Butler of Rainbow City faced Rob McHugh, who is an insurance producer in Steele, and Butler won with 54.97% of the vote.
“I want to thank both men for running positive elections and for being willing to put the time and effort into campaigning,” stated Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. “I offer my congratulations to Mack Butler for his victory. There is no doubt in my mind that Mack will be a solid conservative Republican public servant in Montgomery and I look forward to working with him to ensure a win in his upcoming special general election.”
“Our Republican majority in Montgomery has stayed the course over the last two years in cleaning up Montgomery and right-sizing government. Mack will be a tremendous asset to our team,” concluded Armistead.
Grateful for his victory, Butler said, “I am humbled by the vote, and excited about being chosen as the Republican nominee for State House District 30. I would also like to thank Rob McHugh for running a good race.”
Butler faces Democrat Beth McGlaughan, an attorney from Southside, in the December 11th special general election.
