John Merrill, the Alabama Secretary of State, commented on the visits to Alabama: “We are excited to have them back in Alabama, and we want to welcome them to our great state once again! I am thrilled with how the SEC Primary has developed and what it means for our people to have personal interaction with these candidates. With the Alabama primary being less than a week away, it is a very exciting time for our people to have the opportunity to speak with presidential candidates. Thanks to the assistance and full support of the Alabama Legislature, one of the most significant things we have done in the Secretary of State’s Office is change the primary date to March 1. Since the March primary legislation passed, two Democratic candidates and eight of the top Republican candidates have made campaign stops in Alabama, which is unheard of for our state. As Secretary of State, I will continue to position Alabama and the South as a place where Presidential candidates are willing to make an effort to visit and meet our remarkable people.”
