Taylor gets endorsement from Barnett in Senate District 30 GOP run-off

PRATTVILLE, AL - Bryan Taylor, Republican candidate for Senate District 30, won the endorsement of one of his primary challengers a day after Taylor received 49 percent of the vote in the three-man GOP primary.
Taylor, a first-time candidate who has made government accountability and economic growth the centerpiece of his campaign, was endorsed by Ken Barnett, who finished third in the Republican primary. Taylor will face Ray Boles in the July 13 runoff. Boles trailed Taylor by about 16 percentage points.
"Bryan Taylor is by far the better candidate, and I urge my supporters to vote for Bryan in the runoff," said Barnett. "Bryan is a conservative who will fight for our values. Ray Boles is not a conservative. Ray Boles either pretends he doesn't have a grasp on the issues, or he just really doesn't have a grasp on the issues. I'm proud to be supporting the real conservative, Bryan Taylor, in this important race."

In Tuesday's Republican primary, Taylor won 7,350 votes, or 49 percent. Boles trailed with 4,904 votes, or 33 percent. Barnett won 2,704 votes, or 18 percent.
