Congressional District Candidates Debate at Region’s Field

Staff Report

BIRMINGHAM—The Greater Birmingham Young Republicans will host a debate between, Representative Paul DeMarco and Gary Palmer, who are seeking to represent the 6 congressional district.

“Many believe that all Republicans are the same, but that’s not always correct. These candidates offer unique and different benefits for the 6th District. It’s our intention to show voters the differences between these candidates, so they can make the most informed decision possible,” said Marshall Yates, one of the events moderators.

The event will take place June 19 at Region’s Field. Before the program will begin there will be a social hour starting at 6 pm and the program will kickoff at 7. Everyone is invited to hear from the remaining candidates and enjoy Birmingham’s spectacular new ballpark. The event is free to the public.

“The GBYRs appreciate that we have two great candidates that are willing to come out and talk about the issues that are important to younger republicans,” Yates said.

This event will serve as a chance to get to meet and hear from the remaining candidates vying for the open Congressional seat left by Spencer Bachus.

Sponsors of the event include Region’s Bank, the Alabama Association for Justice, Shaun McCutcheon, Governor Robert Bentley, Senator Clay Scofield and others. Also, during the social hour Shaun McCutcheon will be signing copies of his new book that details in journey to the Supreme Court and how he ultimately changed campaign election law with his case McCutchen v. FEC.
