Former ALGOP chairman Terry Lathan.

The DeSantis for President Campaign announced Friday its Alabama Chairman, Terry Lathan. Terry Lathan is the former Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. In 2020, she served as the RNC Convention Permanent Deputy Co-Chair.  

Mrs. Lathan said: “As the longest serving chairman of the Alabama Republican Party since 1985, with decades of grassroots experience, I am proud to endorse Governor Ron DeSantis for our party’s nomination for President of the United States. 

Through his solid, focused leadership, he has strongly delivered for the people of Florida. Governor DeSantis epitomizes rock solid conservative principles in his actions while fighting insane liberal policies in a statesmanlike manner.  

His incredible results are not from words — they are from his actions.  

Governor DeSantis is exactly who America needs at this important political crossroad in our nation.  And he can win in November! 

While we have several gifted and talented candidates, Ron DeSantis is a time-tested warrior who has implemented conservative policy and understands the importance of our military needs. Ron served our nation honorably earning the Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Service and the Iraq Campaign Medal in the US Navy as a JAG officer.  

We need a levelheaded, time-tested conservative patriot like Ron DeSantis to lead America.
