Conservative Republican Jerry Carl, candidate for Congress in Alabama’s 1st District, today announced that Representative Chris Pringle has endorsed his campaign for US Congress.
In a statement, Chris Pringle said, “I am confident Jerry Carl will go to Congress and stand with President Trump. I know Jerry – he’s tough, he has a backbone, and he has what it takes to build the wall, defend the unborn, and fight for the interests of South Alabama.”
“Bill Hightower is being funded by the original Never Trump organization who attacked President Trump,” continued Pringle. “They are funneling over $500,000 to his campaign and running false ads attacking Jerry. When I met with the Club for Growth, they demanded a commitment from me to vote against critical legislation to our communities such as the Farm Bill and the National Flood Insurance Program. It was clear to me that to receive their endorsement, I would need to make promises that would harm our area businesses and citizens. The Club for Growth’s lack of interest in South Alabama is troubling to me and I cannot in good conscience support a candidate backed by this outside DC money group.”
In response, Carl said, “Chris is a friend, a strong conservative, and someone who is in office for the right reasons – to get things done for our community. I’m honored to have his endorsement. South Alabama needs someone with a backbone who will stand with President Trump, and I know Chris has seen me fight to protect our conservative way of life. I am honored to have Chris Pringle’s endorsement.”
