Segall to Make Bid on Congressional Seat

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- A Montgomery attorney is throwing his hat into the ring for a seat in congress.

28-year-old Joshua Segall (see-guhl) says he's running in Alabama's 3rd Congressional District.

He's a Democrat, hoping to unseat Republican incumbent, Mike Rogers.

One of Segall's main campaign platforms is the war in Iraq.

He says our troops haven't been treated fairly and the money spent on the war could be better spent elsewhere.

Segall says another of his priorities, if elected to Congress, will be to create jobs to replace those lost when so many textile plants closed in the state.

Congressman Rogers tells WSFA 12 News he will also seek re-election
