“These results demonstrate that voters in our district believe that proven conservative leadership is what Alabama needs,” Palmer said. “Now that the primaries and Super Tuesday are over, I will focus on helping other Republicans campaign to help President Trump win the Republican majority when he returns to the White House. Thank you to the voters who believed in our vision and to those who supported our campaign.”

“I look forward to getting back to work with you!”
