The Alabama Farmers Federation’s political action committee, Alabama FarmPAC, has endorsed Chris McCool for Alabama Supreme Court in 2024. McCool is seeking election to an open seat.
Federation President Jimmy Parnell said McCool’s experience as a farmer and judge make him a strong, conservative candidate for the Supreme Court.
“Judge McCool’s background in agriculture and conservative beliefs make him a friend to Alabama farmers,” Parnell said. “We know he will make decisions based on the rule of law and protect core Alabama values.”
Since 2018, McCool has served on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals. He previously served as district attorney of the 24th Judicial Circuit beginning in 2001, which includes Fayette, Lamar and Pickens counties. In 1995, McCool was appointed assistant district attorney for Pickens County.
McCool graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1993, where he served as chief justice of the Honor Court and was a member of the Alabama Law Review.
A native of Gordo, McCool is the fifth generation raised on his family’s cattle and poultry farm near the Zion Community of Pickens County. He is the eldest son of Diane and the late Harold McCool, who both served as Pickens County Farmers Federation presidents.
McCool and wife Sherri attend Zion Primitive Baptist Church. They have four children and one grandson
