Alabama State Senator Rusty Glover has officially qualified to run for Alabama Lieutenant Governor as a Republican in the 2018 election.
The 51-year-old Mobile-native issued a statement Tuesday saying he is running to defend conservative values, demand transparency in Montgomery, and bring good-paying jobs to all of Alabama.
“I believe in Alabama and I believe in her people. I have a plan as Lieutenant Governor to defend conservative values, demand transparency in Montgomery, and bring good-paying jobs to all of Alabama,” stated Glover.
Glover has served in the Alabama Legislature for 15 years as a member of Alabama House of Representatives (2002-2006) and Senate (2006-present).
Following his campaign announcement in February 2017, he traveled the state extensively building his grassroots base.
“I have enjoyed meeting with and talking to citizens from all corners of Alabama,” said Glover. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue this in the months to come.”
A graduate of Faulkner State Community College, Glover earned an associate degree before enrolling in the University of South Alabama, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, an M.A. in History, and a M.Ed. in Secondary Education.
