MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

On June 3, voters in state senate district 30 will decide who will win the Republican primary.

There are four candidates.

Millbrook businessman Harris Garner has taken the plunge into state politics. Garner believes that alone makes him the right man for the job; an outsider, someone who is fresh and a small businessman who understands business from the ground up.

"I started my business 19-years-ago out of the back of my pick-up. I've worked hard. I understand what it takes to run a business and I wasn't born with a golden spoon," said Garner.

On the other end of the spectrum is Clyde Chambliss, a former three-term member of the Autauga County Commission and now Prattville city councilman. Chambliss is an engineer in Autauga County.

"The biggest thing I want to do is bring fiscal accountability to our state to bring a strong foundation for everything we do," said Chambliss.

Montgomery businesswoman Suzelle Josey says she's ready for the big leagues in the state senate.

"I'm a heavy hitter as well because of all the issues I've been involved in for over a decade," said Josey.

Bill Harris is counting on his 31 years in the military as an example of leadership and a promise to his constituents.

"I can't guarantee I'll get term limits passed but I can promise I will serve no more than two terms. If I can get a lot accomplished in one term maybe that will be enough," said Harris.

District 30 consists of 132,000 people. That includes all of Autauga County, the western and northern parts of Elmore County, a sliver of Tallapoosa County and all of Coosa County.

Incumbent Senator Bryan Taylor announced some time ago he was not running for re-election.

There is one week of campaigning left. The four candidates are predicting a nail biter.
