PELHAM, Ala. (AP) - State Sen. Hank Erwin of Montevallo has
launched a Republican campaign for lieutenant governor.

The two-term senator announced his candidacy Sunday in Pelham.

The 60-year-old Erwin is the first Republican to announce for
next year's lieutenant governor election. Democratic incumbent Jim
Folsom Jr. is seeking re-election and remains unopposed for his
party's nomination.

Erwin described himself as a senator who has pushed for
restrictions on abortion and fought new taxes and gun control.
