Alabama Republican Committee has voted against State Senator Harri Anne Smith to run on the republican ticket.
The controversy stems from Smith's endorsement of democrat Bobby Bright for congress in 2008.
Smith lost the republican nomination for the second district congressional seat to state representative Jay Love of Montgomery.
Senator Smith appeared before the Republican Party steering committee Saturday in Montgomery.
Smith can campaign for state senate as a member of the Independent Party.
