Incumbent U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby has sent out a new campaign mailer asking Alabama voters to vote for him in the upcoming Republican primary on March 1. Titled “Alabama’s Conservative Fighters,” the mailer features Shelby alongside fellow Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Sessions, a well-regarded conservative, is quoted saying, “Richard has been a rock-solid partner for me on immigration and other budget battles we have fought.”
The back-side of the mailer lists a myriad of Shelby’s Senate accomplishments — from taking on President Barack Obama‘s Syrian refugee program to challenging Planned Parenthood funding to denying money to Obamacare — and wraps up with “Let’s keep Alabama’s conservative Senators together in the fight, re-elect Sen. Richard Shelby for U.S. Senate March 1st!”
Shelby will face Iraq War veteran Jonathan McConnell, former state Sen. Shadrack McGill, John Martin and Marcus Bowman in the March 1 primary — the winner of which will likely take the Senate seat in November.
