Republican candidate for the special election in House District 30, Mack Butler, received a major boost to his campaign when U.S. Senator and conservative stalwart Jeff Sessions announced his endorsement of Butler’s candidacy this week. A vacancy in the House District 30 seat was created after Rep. Blaine Galliher received an appointment to serve in Governor Robert Bentley’s cabinet.
After receiving the news from Senator Sessions, Butler remarked, “I am truly honored by Senator Sessions’ endorsement of my campaign. He is a conservative stalwart and great representative of Alabama values.” Butler also stated, “I look forward to doing my part to stand with Senator Sessions to fight the current overreach of the federal government and work to create jobs and improve the economy in Alabama.”
Other recent endorsements of the Butler Campaign include:
Congressman Robert Aderholt
Public Service Commissioner Terry Dunn
State Senator Phil Williams
State Representative Becky Nordgren
State Board of Education Member Mary Scott Hunter
Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin
Etowah County Commissioner Tim Choate
Etowah County Commissioner Larry Payne
Etowah County Commissioner Joey Statum
A host of mayors, councilmen, board of education members, law enforcement officials and organizations and fire department officials from throughout the district have also endorsed the Butler Campaign.
