Alabama Trucking releases its 2022 General Election Guide

Next week is the 2022 General Election on Tuesday, November 8, and we urge you to help Get Out the Trucking Vote!

This cycle all 140 legislative seats, and all statewide constitutional offices are on the Alabama general election ballot. In many respects, however, next week’s election is a formality with much of the heavy lifting done in last summer’s primaries. There still are several races to watch, including the following:

  • Fifty-five Libertarian Party candidates are on the ballot for various state and federal offices, in addition to the typical Republican and Democratic candidates. There are a number of three-way races. A plurality is required to win; 
  • Governor Ivey (R) is a prohibitive favorite over Yolanda Flowers (D) and Jimmy Blake (L) to win a second full term;
  • Lt. Governor Will Ainsworth faces token opposition from Ruth Nelson (L) for a second term;
  • Attorney General Steve Marshall is opposed by Wendell Major (D) in his bid for a second full term; and
  • Katie Britt (R) faces Will Boyd (D) and John Sophocleus (L) for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Sen. Richard Shelby. Britt is a heavy favorite. 

Our job is to represent your interests and concerns to state and local elected officials. Through our political action committee, TRUK PAC, we vet and fund candidates who best understand and support our greatest concerns. We have prepared a TRUK PAC Voter’s Guide for your use with a list of important races and the candidates we endorse. Please share the guide with your friends, family, employees and co-workers.

Please share our voter guide with your friends, family, employees and co-workers, and THANK YOU for supporting pro-trucking candidates.
