Congressman Terry Everett endorses Jay Love for Congress

By Daniel Curtis - bio | email

Daleville, AL (WSFA) - There are new developments in the hotly contested district 2 congressional race.

It comes as no surprise, but Monday republican congressman Terry Everett made it official.

He's putting his support behind fellow republican Jay Love.

Just two weeks removed from the run-off election, republican candidate Love now has the support from the man he hopes to succeed.

"I look forward to Jay Love becoming the next member of congress," said retiring congressman Terry Everett.

Monday, Everett officially endorsed Love's campaign.

Everett joined Love in Daleville for the formal announcement.

Standing in front of city hall, Everett told the crowd of supporters that Love is the conservative choice district two needs.

Love spoke about  the work Everett did for the citizens of the district and said if he makes it to Washington, he will pick up where Everett left off.

"He's been a great example of the fact you can represent the whole district and it means a lot to me," Love said. "Congressman Everett, I've found through the 16 counties, is one of the most widely respected public servants. It's an honor and privilege to be with him here today."

Congressman Everett caused some heads to turn with another comment Monday.

When asked about donating his campaign money to Love, Everett said he would give some, but not all of it, because he wants to consider his options.

He gave no official statement on whether there's a definite race in his future, but said "maybe... you never know."

Congressman Everett has held the district two seat since 1993. Some speculate he may decide to run for governor.

Love faces Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright, a democrat, in the November election.
