Arthur Orr endorses Byrne for U.S. Senate

Tuesday, the Bradley Byrne’s campaign for U.S. Senate announced that State Senator Arthur Orr, R-Decatur, has endorsed Congressman Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, in the Alabama Republican Primary for United States Senate.

Orr made the comments on The Jeff Poor Show on WVNN radio.

“Long term, I believe the best person to be our United States Senator in this race would be Bradley Byrne,” Orr said. “I think he brings an experience level to the position, but he also brings a very good work ethic, a hard work ethic that he has shown as a Congressman.”

“I know that Bradley Byrne will work like a dog to continue supporting our military, which is so important in supporting NASA, and vital to this area,” Orr added. “And the FBI and other important entities of the federal government that are standalone important, but also extremely important to the state of Alabama.”

Senator Orr’s endorsement is the most recent of a number of endorsements from members of the Alabama legislature including: State Senators Tom Butler, Chris Elliott, Greg Albritton, Steve Livingston, David Sessions and State Representatives Mike Ball, Chip Brown, Terri Collins, Brett Easterbrook, David Faulkner, Joe Faust, Victor Gaston, Steve McMillan, Harry Shriver, Matt Simpson, Shane Stringer, and Margie Wilcox.

Byrne is a former State Senator. He has also served as head of the state Two Year College System, and on the state school board.

He currently represents Alabama’s First Congressional District.
