Rep. Bachus will not seek re-election

Published 7:18pm Monday, September 30, 2013

U.S. Rep. Spencer Bachus (AL06) has announced that he will not seek re-election in 2014.

Bachus has served the sixth district of Alabama for 11 terms. The sixth district includes parts of Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Coosa, Jefferson and Shelby counties.

“Spencer Bachus served Alabama and the Sixth Congressional District well for many years,” ALGOP Chairman Bill Armistead said. “His leadership on the House Financial Services Committee showed his strength and dedication to his position. I know that Congressman Bachus will finish his term proudly and will work hard until his final day in office.

“My prayers go out to Spencer and Linda and I wish them the very best,” Armistead said. “I have no doubt that there will be a number of very qualified conservative Republicans who will seek to represent the Sixth Congressional District in next year’s election.”
