I was sitting here thinking and it dawned on me while I try to tell people all the time how important it is to vote in the primary so we have decent candidates to vote for in the general election. I didn’t know when the primary was in my own state without looking it up. If I didn’t know off the top of my head? How many other people may not know when their’s is?
I know some people will complain that I’m calling them dumb etc. Anyone who knows me will understand that isn’t true. Bottom line is, people are busy with life and they don’t have time to keep up with everything. If my internet was down I wouldn’t be able to get the information. So I got the dates for all the states and put them in a pdf file you can download and keep election_dates .
Here I will try and put forth some possible candidates. This is only my opinion and I would suggest people look at the candidates for themselves. If you have any differing thoughts please leave comments so people can make their decisions with as much information as possible.
The Governor Kay Ivey is up for election in 2018. I have not read anything bad so I would say from my perspective leave her in. She is a Republican and I would hate to see liberal policies put in place.
The Senate does not have any open seats.
CD1- Bradley Roberts Byrne At this time he is not facing a primary challenge plus he has a pretty good conservative voting record.
CD2- Martha Roby She is facing primary challengers, her voting record is not as good as I would like, Felix Barry “Barry” Moore based on his website I wouldn’t have a problem with him, Rich Hobson – will leave that up to the voters, Thomas Marrion “Tommy” Amason, III Again based on his website I have no problem with him.
CD3- Michael Dennis “Mike” Rogers At this time he is not facing a primary challenge.
CD4- Robert Brown Aderholt Has one primary challenger at this point, his voting record is not as conservative as I would like plus he has been there since 1996, Phillip “Phil” Norris This guy sounds like he would support what is good for the country so if I lived in Alabama I would support him in the primary.
CD5- Morris J. “Mo” Brooks, Jr. I like Mo Brooks, he does have primary challengers, Robert Clayton “Clayton” Hinchman no problem with Robert Hinchman, Terrence Michael “Michael” Sweeney Guess I would have questions but if he won the primary I would vote for him.
CD6- Gary Palmer Not facing a primary challenge.
CD7- Terri Sewell no Republicans running so my suggestion is vote for anyone else who may be on the ticket.
