Murdock officially announced his Supreme Court campaign yesterday and representatives from each wing of the GOP were present.
Tom Dart, executive director of the Automobile Dealers Association of Alabama, said his group is supporting Murdock and he expects most other business groups to do the same. Dart described Murdock as "a good, conservative judge" who can bridge the business and religious sides of the Republican party.With those two guys (and who they represent) in his corner , I'm ready to go ahead and pencil in Murdock's name on the November ballot. I knew that the BCA types were going to back Murdock, but it is quite a coup to have them so public so early.
"He just has bona fide evangelical legal credentials," [Tom]Parker said.
At this rate I am not sure that Jean Brown will even make it to the June primary. She should look at running for an appellate seat or maybe even a local judgeship. With a unified GOP, John England, or other Democrats looking at this race, might be smart to take the same advice.
