U.S. Representative Bradley Byrne (R) from Montrose said in a written statement: “Today we celebrate that ‘He is risen indeed’ as we give thanks for Jesus Christ’s blessing of salvation for our sins. Easter is a time to reflect on our many blessings in Southwest Alabama. Rebecca and I wish all of our friends and neighbors in Alabama’s First Congressional District a Happy Easter.”
U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R) from Montgomery said on Facebook, “Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter Sunday! He is risen!”
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead (R) said on Facebook, “Easter is a special day for those who love the Lord and it was especially special today as my son Beau baptized his son Cole. There is no greater joy than to know your children and their children are walking with the Lord.”
The Speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives Mike Hubbard (R) from Auburn said on Facebook,
