The Cherokee County Republican Party Headquarters was packed Friday morning during a visit from Representative Bradley Byrne, who is a candidate for Senate in the 2020 race.
Byrne spoke for just under an hour covering a wide range of topics – and fielded questions from a crowd of local citizens and dignitaries – covering everything from trade issues to the state of the economy and national defense.
During the gathering, he made his thoughts clear on the issue of border security:
He also made it clear he intends to serve the best interests of the people of north Alabama – and Cherokee County:
Afterwards we spoke with Centre native Senator Andrew Jones, who was hosting the event, and accompanying Representative Byrne on a number of other campaign meet and greets – and he shared his thoughts on just why the three-term congressman from Fairhope should be in the Senate:
We’ll have more on Byrne’s visit to Cherokee County in the coming days.
When Alabama needs a fighter for conservative values, Bradley Byrne steps up. Throughout his lifetime, Bradley has never backed down from a challenge and always works to put Alabama and America first. Born and raised in Mobile, Bradley’s Alabama roots run deep. The Byrne family has been actively involved in the Mobile community since long before Alabama’s statehood. Bradley and his wife, Rebecca, still reside in Southwest Alabama, not far from where his family settled in the 1780s. Bradley’s parents taught him the conservative values of hard work and individual responsibility and as a result Bradley was a first-generation college graduate.
After graduating from the University of Alabama School of Law, Bradley returned to Mobile to practice, married Rebecca, and became involved in the local community. As a passionate father concerned about education in Alabama, Bradley entered public service as a member of the Alabama State Board of Education. His fight for Alabama continued as a member of the State Senate, and he later took on government corruption in Alabama’s community college system. Driven by his belief in ethical leadership, Bradley worked tirelessly to reform Alabama’s Department of Postsecondary Education, where he served as Chancellor.
Taking on both Republicans and Democrats, Bradley challenged a system plagued by corruption, budget overruns, and inefficiency and put taxpayers first. Thanks to Bradley’s fearless leadership, the system returned to its core mission of educating students and preparing them for the workforce. In the U.S. House of Representatives, Bradley continued to fight for our Alabama values in Washington. Whether standing up for Alabama’s veterans, defending the Second Amendment, or fighting for Alabama’s rural communities, Bradley is dedicated to defending the Constitution and its protections that make Alabama a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Bradley and Rebecca are proud parents to Patrick, Kathleen, Laura, and Colin, and grandparents to MacGuire and Ann-Roberts Byrne. His work in public service is driven by his steadfast faith and an understanding that our rights come from God, not man. Bradley’s mission is to protect the freedom given to us by our Creator for future generations.
