MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Randy Brinson, President of the Christian Coalition of Alabama and founder and chairman of Redeem The Vote, announced Monday he will begin campaigning for the U.S. Senate seat.

According to Brinson, working with groups such as the Christian Coalition and Redeem The Vote has given him insight into how frustrated voters are with corruption, self-dealing and venality of politicians in government.

“For this reason, I am now compelled to step down from my roles with the Christian Coalition and Redeem the Vote in order to run for the United States Senate in the special election this August,” Brinson said. “I am looking forward to working with a preeminent [sic] campaign team and running a modern, well-funded campaign that will draw a contrast between myself, as a voter advocate and faith leader, and the incumbent, and other career politicians running for this office.”

Brinson says he will be launching his campaign website that will engage grassroots throughout Alabama. He is also calling on the public, “for your support and prayers. Together we will win this race.”

Qualifying is now underway for Alabama’s special election for U.S. Senate seat with primaries scheduled for August 15 and a general election on Dec. 12.

Several other notable names have announced they will be seeking the seat including Sen. Luther Strange and suspended Chief Justice Roy Moore.

The qualifying deadline to appear on the ballot is May 17.
