AEA backing Republican candidates in North Alabama
The TimesDaily reports: The Alabama Education Association's political action committee gave major contributions to three candidates challenging two Republican lawmakers from north Alabama, according to March campaign finance reports.
The PAC gave $25,000 each to a Democrat and a Republican challenging Sen. Paul Bussman, R-Cullman. It also gave $25,000 to a Republican challenging Rep. Dan Williams, R-Athens.
"We give to Republicans all over the state," AEA chief Henry Mabry said.
He said the AEA believes Republican Bobby Jackson, who is challenging Williams, is a pro-education candidate. Mabry criticized Williams for his education-related votes during the past four years, including his support of the Alabama Accountability Act.
