The primary for the race is Aug.15, 2017 and the special election is Dec. 12, 2017. This election replaces Jeff Sessions, who has become the US Attorney General. However Sessions, who has been saying NO to everything for 8 years, now works for a President that only wants YES for an answer.
In fact Mr. Sessions has considered resigning as Attorney General after assuming the post less than 3 months ago. They better have this election soon or Mr. Sessions may come back to Alabama for fear of drowning in the swamp.
11 Republicans and 8 Democrats have qualified for the primary,
Alabama Senate race updated list: 11 Republicans, 8 Democrats qualify
Today is the deadline for candidates hoping to be elected Alabama’s next U.S. Senator.
Everyone should read the bio’s of all the candidates then compare them with other articles and see how the bio’s compare. Some candidates stand out for their infamous reputations or political ambitions that drive them into becoming professional long term politicians.
Summer brings hot political races – Lagniappe Mobile
It’s hot. In Mobile, Alabama, in June. Big surprise! But if you think June is hot, just wait until we get to August. We will be sweating by 9 a.m AND we have two political races guaranteed to make things even steamier around here. Time to get our ACs as well as our BS detectors …
Luther Strange, Roy Moore, and BP beneficiary Tripp Pittman, should be crossed off the list intermediately. “Big Luther” sold out to Bentley to get Session’s seat, temporary, by turning a blind eye to Bentley’s investigation. Big Luther also ignored the evidence against Sen. Tripp Pittman and his $750,000 money grab of BP funds, while he was the “trustee” of BP funds. Another reason to reject BL is because the “Washington” Republican party is demanding you vote for BL or else! That’s BS. They know BL, once in, will vote as told.
Roy Moore has failed on two occasions to seek the governor’s office and has been thrown off the Alabama Supreme Court twice, not to many people have that on their resume, certainly no senator.
Tripp Pittman is such a lousy candidate it would take all the paper from a California redwood to list the reasons why he just needs to go away. Mr. Pittman announced his candidacy immediately after Del Marsh, speaker pro tem of Alabama Senate, said he was not going to run. Pittman claims God told him to run and he will need God to win.
That gives you 8 Republicans and 8 Democrats to choose from, with about 90 days until the primary.
Mr. Mo Brooks, first elected to Congress in 2011, is leading in popularity and will definitely throw a monkey wrench into the race.
Trip Pittman said Jack helped him pray over a jelly biscuit at the biscuit queen.
Seriously ?? Or is this your attempt at humor?
BP needs to come back & demand their money back from Tripp Pitman – wonder if they have been notified?? Too many people claimed FALSE claims to get money from BP
We all with the facts I agree with you 100%. Tripp Pittman did award contracts to himself unethically and will pay for it. He did make a mess of things in the bay and screwed a lot of contractors and fishing captains and guides out of a lot of money. As usual he always say he will pray over it. I’m an elder of a church and I don’t preach the word to everyone everyday. But it seems like Tripp Pittman has to ask for forgiveness from our lord every day. Tripp Pittman. You is a liar and is closer to the devil than anyone else that we know. Heck. Jack Burrell is a choirboy compared to how Pittman has screwed Baldwin County and the State of Alabama. There is more proof coming and all you Pittman butt kissers will finally understand a litttle more clearly. But the people that stand by his side have never minded the taste of dog crap in their mouths and we know who most of them are and have taken notes.
Trip has made millions in ongoing equipment rental contracts with Baldwin County.
Corruption Baldwin Style.
Trip is like six foot seven. I had no idea you could stack crap that high.
The guy from north Alabama wins. Mo.
Citizens think that Kant has done no wrong because nothing has actually been made public yet. Things keep being delayed – he has done many criminal things including falsifying documents. This needs to come out very soon. I am tired of keeping quite about this & will not much longer.
He is being protected because the people in cahoots with him are….lawyers, the insurers for the city, etc. We as citizens are allowing these creeps to get away with their corruption by not speaking up.
You are correct. But, the troops have rallied somewhat during the past few months. We think they might be getting a little worn out with the vulgar language and the awkward group like strike my ass because I want you too fast or
666 or 333, etc. Duh??? Or Kant is wonderful or Chris Elliot still says he really didn’t get a real DUI (really) or Tripp Pittman can actually go a day without telling a lie. He really cannot do it. If you really believe in God. God is telling him to shut up and quit lying and get out of politics. Understand that the ignorant people in his wake of destruction. You will be disappointed. No doubt at all. Sometimes it’s for the best.
Hang if there Fairhope citizens and Baldwin County Citizens alike. You still have Tucker Dorsey that continues to make all of us look like barefooted stupid rednecks to the rest of the Country. He can represent himself as that. But should not allow some of these larger networks think of us this way
and should never be allowed to talk to any media group ever again. Especially outside our County. Thought he would have grown up al little bit. But you can’t fix hatefulness or stupid. Another Amen politician!!! Amen. Amen Amen. Geeze. Tripp Pittman Prayed that the bay waters will depart and that he can clean up mess that HE INTENTIONALLY DID TO HARM MOBILE BAY. Its so fake. No mater what turns out to be right or wrong. At least finish the job we started. The clock has almost struck midnight and all the lies will be put right in front of you. The Calvary is coming. WE CAN HEAR THEM COMING. So for heavens sake. If you can’t hold on to what you believe in for a little longer. Then you all will be considered losers for the rest of your lives. Have faith!!!! Things that are worth fighting for cannot be given up just because some hateful people want what they want and not what is best for Fairhope or Baldwin County. Stay strong. You all are strong. I promise you it will be fine!!!!! We will not back down and now is the time to reach down deep and work hard for what is right and what is legal. Anyone that wants to come out and curse you out or act like a freak. We will handle them and they will continue to destroy themselves everyday and they even know it. It’s so sad. Chris Elliot. I wouldn’t be drinking alcohol at all and driving. That is just stupid or is that what Alabama State senators are expected to do. You won’t slip through the crack next time. There is a long list wainting for you to get your next DUI! You’ll see the other side of the steel bars for a lot longer than you did before. Don’t think we have forgotten about you Jack Burrell???? It’s just going to be too easy with you. Affidavits are being signed everyday. Your mutts are next. Because they heard and agree to the terrible things you have said. Your foot is in the trap. We just won’t let it go off while you think you are so perfect. How many people do you even remember talking to at some of these charity event or school fundraiser events when alcohol is present??? We will be reminding you soon. Strike hard, strike fast. I like it!!!!
If anyone has proof, why don’t they release it to the media now? I’m sure that he did illegal things but it appears that no one can prove it, in which case we need to just get over it and try to eliminate corruption in Wilson’s administration.
Fox guards the henhouse.
Jester is monitoring this frecency looking for targets.
This place is like walking into an elementary school, most are so uneducated as to the facts that I am going climb to 8 and hold.
Strike Fast! Strike Hard!
When proof is provided to proper authorities these things take time. Authorities don’t want media coverage while being investigated.
Need fresh candidates state and county.
You let us know just who the proper authorities are since we know that all of these people in cahoots like lawyers, judges, insurance people, people with money to wave around, etc. have hands that reach all over Baldwin County and to Montgomery.
Tough choices. Hold your nose and vote Brooks.
