Wes Allen visits all 67 Alabama counties campaigning for Secretary of State

The election for secretary of state will be determined by voters on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Secretary of state candidate Rep. Wes Allen speaking at a campaign event.

When Wes Allen, R-Troy, announced that he was running to become Alabama’s next Republican Secretary of State, he promised that he would campaign in each of Alabama’s 67 counties. Allen has now fulfilled that promise, according to Allen’s campaign.

“This is a big state,” Allen said. “I have travelled nearly 100,000 miles by car throughout this campaign and I have now made my case on why I should be elected as Alabama’s next Secretary of State in each of Alabama’s 67 counties. Meeting voters in every county in the state was important to me and it is important to the voters.”

Allen secured the Republican nomination for the office of Secretary of State in Alabama’s runoff election on June 21, “but his campaign never slowed down,” the campaign stated.

“I have visited every county but I am not slowing down,” Allen promised. “I will campaign as I hard as I possibly can until the polls close on November 8.”

Allen is the only candidate for secretary of state that has campaigned in all of Alabama’s counties.

Allen served as the Probate Judge of Pike County for nearly a decade before being elected to serve District 89 (Pike and Dale Counties) in the Alabama House of Representatives. The election for Secretary of State will be determined by voters on Tuesday, November 8.
