AFA Endorses Attorney General Steve Marshall for July 17 Runoff Election

MONTGOMERY – ForestPAC, the political action committee of the Alabama Forestry Association, has endorsed Attorney General Steve Marshall for the July 17th runoff election for Attorney General.

Marshall has served as Alabama’s Attorney General since incumbent AG Luther Strange was appointed to the unexpired term of U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, who is now the U.S Attorney General.

“Steve Marshall’s track record of being tough on crime is unquestioned,” said AFA Executive Vice President Chris Isaacson. “As Attorney General, Steve has distinguished himself as a champion for rural Alabama, fighting regulatory overreach by EPA and other federal agencies that was largely leftover from the Obama administration.”

Prior to being appointed attorney general, Marshall served as district attorney in Marshall County for 16 years. He was born in Atmore Alabama. Steve received his BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his law degree from the University of Alabama.     

Marshall said he appreciates the support of the forestry community in Alabama.

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Alabama Forestry Association,” said Marshall. “Forestry plays an integral role in our state’s infrastructure and AFA has worked tirelessly to protect and sustain this resource for Alabama’s economic prosperity. Having support from this community gives our campaign great momentum as we approach the July 17th runoff.”

Marshall faces former Alabama Attorney General Troy King in the July 17th runoff.
