Will Boyd, pastor of the St. Mark Baptist Church in Florence, has announced he’s running for the U.S. Senate.

“I’m running for the same reasons I ran in the past,” Boyd said in a Youtube video announcing his candidacy. “I have a great love for the people of Alabama and I really believe there are so many critical issues that need to be addressed. I believe I’m the best person that can solve those issues working alongside you in the United States Senate.”

Boyd, a mechanical engineer by training, lives in Hoover with his wife, Vida Boyd, and three children.
