Laura Clark announces bid for Alabama Secretary of State

State Rep. Wes Allen (R-Troy) will have at least one challenger in his bid for the Republican spot for Secretary of State on the 2022 general election ballot.

Laura Clark of Mountain Brook announced on Birmingham radio Talk 99.5’s “Matt & Val” program on Tuesday she will also be seeking the GOP nod next May.

Clark, a mother of two and originally from Dothan, made the announcement during an appearance on Matt Murphy and Valerie Vining’s morning drive program, accompanied by Republican activist Perry Hooper, Jr.

“The reason that I would like to be Secretary of State — right now, we are under attack and I don’t think anybody can deny that,” she stated. “These left-wing Democrats — they’ll do anything to destroy our elections.”

Clark spoke approvingly of Merrill, proclaiming he had done “a fantastic job” in his role.

“That is what I want to do,” she continued. “I want to run it — he runs it like a business, and that is the way that office needs to be run.”
