By Brandon Moseley

It is only 259 days to the Alabama Presidential Primary and things are already starting to get rolling in the world of Alabama Republican Presidential politics.

Former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum was in Montgomery on Monday, June 15. The Senator carried Alabama in the 2012 Primary season and is hoping for a repeat performance here in 2016.

The Santorum campaign said that Presidential hopeful, Sen. Rick Santorum and family, were in Montgomery, AL Monday, not only touring Alabama facilities and talking to constituents, but also attending their son, Daniel’s graduation at Maxwell Air Force Base.

Sen. Rick Santorum said, “Karen and I are so proud of Daniel on completing Air Force field training today. We are proud Citadel Air Force parents!”

Sen. Santorum also toured MMI products in Montgomery. The conservative former Senator said in a statement on Facebook, “Touring MMI Outdoor in Alabama today. MMI designs and manufactures tents, backpacks, and related products for the United States Military and USDA Forest Service Firefighters. We’re enjoying meeting with employees to discuss ways to improve the lives of hardworking families.”

Possible Republican Presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson will be in Birmingham for the Grid Iron Men’s Conference on June 18 and 19 at the BJCC. Carson will also be joining Alabama Republican Party Members for a teleconference on June 25.

Alabama has joined five other states which will all hold their presidential primary on March 1, 2016. The hope is that Alabama will become a much bigger player in the primary process, bringing more candidates to the State.

Sen. Santorum and Dr. Carson will both join former Texas Governor Rick Perry and Florida Senator Marco Rubio for a Pro-Life forum at the National Right to Life Convention in New Orleans, LA on July 10.
