Bradley Byrne capped off a strong week in his race for the Republican nomination for US Senate. He received the endorsements of two State Senators, Arthur Orr and Tom Butler.
As published in a press release, Senator Orr said, ”Longterm, I believe the best person to be our United States Senator in this race would be Bradley Byrne. I think he brings an experience level to the position, but he also brings a very good work ethic, a hard work ethic that he has shown as a Congressman.”
He continued, “I know that Bradley Byrne will work like a dog to continue supporting our military, which is so important in supporting NASA, and vital to this area. And the FBI and other important entities of the federal government that are standalone important, but also extremely important to the state of Alabama.”
Arthur Orr represents parts of Limestone, Madison, and Morgan counties in the state senate. He is the chairman of the Senate Finance and Taxation Education committee.
Byrne also received the endorsement of State Senator Tom Butler.
Senator Butler said in a press release, “I have known Bradley for over 20 years. I served with him in the Alabama State Senate. I was serving in the Alabama Senate while he was Chancellor of the Alabama Community College System. He corrected tremendous problems within the system. He has consistently demonstrated how capable he is in the U.S. Congress. Bradley represents military contractors in Mobile building U.S. Navy Warships. He has helped with funding Redstone Arsenal, NASA, and other military investments in our region.
“He is a hard worker and most importantly a man of faith. It is my honor and privilege to endorse and solicit your support for Congressman Bradley Byrne to be our next U.S. Senator.”
State Senator Tom Butler, represents parts of Limestone and Madison counties. He is the chairperson of the Veterans and Military Affairs committee in the senate.
