Chris Reid, a prominent attorney in Birmingham, has endorsed Steve Marshall for Alabama Attorney General ahead of the Tuesday runoff between Marshall and Troy King.
“For over a year, Steve Marshall has valiantly served as our Attorney General. Taking office after Luther Strange was appointed to the Senate, Marshall wasted no time fighting to protect Alabamians and uphold our constitution,” Reid said. “He has done more to fight the massive opioid crisis and crack down on violent crime than many other officials in the state and deserves a full-term as Alabama’s chief law enforcer.”
Marshall has served on Governor Ivey’s Alabama Opioid Overdose & Addiction Council and rigorously prosecuted illegal opioid and prescription drug traffickers. Endorsed by the NRA, he has proved a staunch defender of Alabamians’ Second Amendment rights. Marshall has also joined the efforts of President Trump and Republicans to end the massive influx of illegal immigration into our state to ensure the safety of our citizens.
Marshall’s opponent, Troy King, has been caught too many times rubbing elbows with unsavory characters. In 2008, King was investigated for his alleged involvement in a scheme to allow an illegal casino to operate in Dothan – a scheme that likely involved political kickbacks and some convoluted legal maneuvers. He was not convicted, but Alabamians overwhelmingly removed him from office in 2010. That same year, King’s actions lead the state legislature to pass sweeping ethics laws to protect against corrupt politicians.
On Tuesday, Alabamians have the opportunity to rise above the muck and stop the rampant election of corrupt politicians into our state offices. According to Mr. Reid, “Steve Marshall will continue to fight for the interests and values of all Alabamians. He is a dear friend of our firm and is the obvious choice for Alabama’s Attorney General.”
