On Monday, June 30, the Paul DeMarco for Congress campaign announced in a written statement that most of the State legislators who lives in the Sixth congressional district have endorsed Paul DeMarco for Congress.
The DeMarco campaign said that this showed that the bottom line is those who have worked side-by-side with DeMarco know he can get the job done.
State Representative Jim Carns (R) from Vestavia said, “It is crucial to send someone to the National arena who is effective, experienced, and has solid, unquestionable integrity. Paul has proven himself on the battlefield here at home in Alabama politics and he will have immediate impact in Washington at this pivotal time.” Carns is a former Jefferson County Commissioner.
State Representative Paul DeMarco said, “I am proud of the men and women who have stood beside me to fight for conservative principles in Montgomery now support me for Congress. Their support means more to me than any Washington, D.C. interest group because these folks know me and know where my heart and priorities are.”
Some of the state legislators supporting Paul Demarco include: Rep. David Standridge (R) from Hayden, Rep. Mike Hill (R) from Columbiana, Rep. Kurt Wallace from Maplesville, Rep. Mary Sue McClurken (R) from Indian Springs, Rep. Arthur Payne (R) from Trussville, Rep. Dickie Drake from Leeds, Rep. Jack Williams (R) from Vestavia Hills, Rep. Jim Carns (R) from Birmingham, Rep. April Weaver from Alabaster, Rep. Allen Treadaway (R) from Morris, state Senator Cam Ward (R) from Alabaster and Sen. Jabo Waggoner (R) from Vestavia Hills.
Paul DeMarco is a member of the Alabama House of Representatives representing House District 46. He, his wife Jacqueline and their son Jack, live in Homewood.
DeMarco’s Republican Primary Runoff opponent is Gary Palmer. Palmer co-founded the Alabama Policy Institute (API) and for 24 years served as its President.
The Republican Primary Runoff is Tuesday, July 15.
The Sixth District is currently represented by Congressman Spencer Bachus (R) from Vestavia who is retiring after this term, his eleventh term.
The eventual Republican nominee will still have to face Democrat Avery Vise and Libertarian Aimee Love in the November 4th general election.
