Segall to run for Congress again

Democrat Josh Segall of Montgomery has announced he will run for the 3rd Congressional District again in 2010, according to a release from the Alabama Democratic Party.
Segall lost to U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Saks, in 2008. He raised almost $1 million and claimed over 46 percent of the vote with little help from national Democrats.
“It’s time for a new direction," Segall said in the statement. "I am a fiscal conservative who will work to create and attract 21st Century jobs to east Alabama so that hardworking people can get ahead.
“Alabama is suffering under irresponsible policies that bail out greedy executives who created this mess and leave hardworking Alabama families holding the bag. Rogers supported the Wall Street bailout, but did nothing for Main Street Alabama. He voted to send Alabama jobs overseas, when what we needed was a plan to create good jobs at home. It’s time to stand up to special interest politics and put Alabama families first once again."
District 3 includes portions of Montgomery and much of eastern Alabama.
