Birmingham, Ala. — Today, Senator Larry Stutts, (R-Tuscumbia), known as one of the most conservative members of the Alabama Senate, has announced that he is endorsing Tim James for Governor.


"I have worked with Governor Ivey for the last 8 years, but the time has come for new leadership for Alabama,” said Sen. Stutts. “As we move into the next four years, we need dynamic and forward-thinking leadership to take this state to the next level. Tim James is the right one for the job.”


A practicing physician, Senator Stutts is completing his second term in the Alabama Senate and is running for re-election this year without opposition. He represents Senate District 6, which includes Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence, and Marion Counties. One of the most conservative members in the state senate, Stutts has a 100% pro-business rating by the NFIB and a 100% pro-life voting record.


Senator Stutts added: “We need a governor who has the strength and stamina to fight back against the ever-growing pressure by the federal government to take over every aspect of our daily lives. During the debate over vaccine and mask mandates, Governor Ivey erred on the side of federal mandates at the expense of personal freedom. In addition, her administration has recently been a tool of special interests trying to push legalizing marijuana and massively expanding casino gambling and infinite increasing of gas taxes. The culture of this state is being eroded before our very eyes.


Stutts continued: “Tim James’ experience in the private sector and his conservative values, firmly anchored by his faith, make him the leader we need for today’s challenges. Tim James will be the Alabama version of Ron DeSantis, and I am proud and honored to endorse him for governor.”


“I could not be more proud to have Senator Stutts’ endorsement,” said Tim James. “His character and commitment to principle are what is needed by every elected official in Alabama. I look forward to working with him to cut taxes, improve Alabama’s failing schools, and protect our state from federal overreach.”
