On Thursday, Roy Moore’s campaign announced the endorsement of the Alabama Senate Pro Tem Del Marsh (R-Anniston). Marsh’s endorsement comes as many of the state’s Republican leaders have begun to rally behind their candidate to ensure he defeats the Democrat in December.
“This is a time for unity,” Marsh said Thursday. “Alabama Republicans voted overwhelmingly to elect Judge Moore as our nominee for the United States Senate, and I will support our nominee. The liberal policies of the Obama Era – embraced by Democrat Doug Jones – have failed, and we must do all we can to support our president. If Alabamians want to ensure that President Trump has another ally in the United States Senate, then it is imperative that they support the Republican nominee.”
Marsh has represented Senate District 12 since 1998, and has served as President Pro Tempore since 2010. He plans to seek reelection in 2018, continuing on his platform of improved education and infrastructure.
Moore continues to hold a significant lead over Doug Jones in early polls. Marsh’s endorsement is more than likely only the beginning of a plethora of Republican lawmakers who will throw their support behind Moore leading up to the general election in December.
