Alfa Endorsements

By  | 

The Alabama Farmers Federation is backing all but one of the four Republicans running for the state appellate courts.

The federation's political action committee announced endorsements Friday.

In federal races, federation President Jerry Newby said the group is supporting President Bush, US Senator Richard Shelby, and all seven of Alabama's incumbent U.S. House members.

In state races, the federation endorsed GOP Supreme Court candidates Patti Smith and Mike Bolin and Court of Civil Appeals candidate Tommy Bryan. The group made no endorsement in the Supreme Court race between Republican Tom Parker and Democrat Robert H. Smith.

The Farmers Federation also endorsed Republican Stephanie Bell for re-election to the District Three seat on the State Board of Education.
