Hunter to run for state Senate
Mary Scott Hunter of Huntsville is not running for lieutenant governor next year. Instead, she’ll seek the state Senate seat being vacated by Paul Sanford, who is not running for re-election.
“I love this state, and I love the place I call home, Madison County, Alabama,” Hunter, a Republican, said in a recent press release. “I’ve decided to enter the race for Senate District 7 because it’s where I can best serve the people.”
Announced candidates for that position are now state Rep. Bill Ainsworth, Alabama Public Service Commission President Twinkle Cavanaugh and state Sen. Rusty Glover.
Potential candidates for state offices next year have until February to qualify. Primaries are in June.
