Educational Choice Candidates Prevail in Alabama Primary Runoff

The American Federation for Children (AFC), the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates pro-educational choice candidates for their successes during the primary runoff election.

Statement from Michael Joffrion, Alabama State Director for the American Federation for Children: 

“The American Federation for Children is committed to supporting candidates in any party who want to empower parents with K-12 education options for their children. The victories here in Alabama show that voters will reward candidates who share their vision of excellent schools and stand with parents who want the freedom to choose the best education for their children.”

In last week’s primary, AFC’s state-based affiliate, the Alabama Federation for Children PAC (ALFC PAC) endorsed two candidates who believe that parents are best at determining what educational environment works best for their children.

Debbie Wood was successful in defending against Todd Rausch in House District 38. Wood won 50.008% of the vote and moves on to the general in November.

In House District 102, Shane Stringer defeated Willie Gray with 50.03% of the vote. Stringer will take office in January as no Democrats filed in this district.
