MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Attorney General Steve Marshall is returning to the campaign trail after taking time away in the wake of his wife, Bridgette’s death.
The GOP primary runoff election is July 17, and Marshall’s opponent, former Attorney General Troy King, has already resumed campaigning as well.
In a letter to supporters, Marshall thanked those who had sent prayers and well wishes his way, saying he was “overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support my family has received.”
“As we move forward, I am choosing to honor Bridgette’s memory in all that I do. Right now, that means getting back to work and continuing to serve the people of Alabama.
“It’s been an honor to be your Attorney General and I am committed to finishing strong in this race. I pledge to keep my campaign focused solely on the issues at hand.
“With this perspective, I look forward to my final days on the campaign trail before the run-off and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people of our state. Each and every one of you plays an important role in this chapter of my life because together, we are Alabama Strong.”
With 11 days to go until the July 17 GOP runoff, the Marshall campaign is airing a final television ad called “Courage.”
