Love Will Seek Re-Election to House Seat

Citing a possible Republican takeover of the Alabama House in the 2010 election cycle, State Rep. Jay Love, R-Montgomery, announced Tuesday that he will forego another campaign for the 2nd Congressional District seat to seek reelection to the office he currently holds.

"The 2010 election cycle is important to the Alabama Republican Party, and with just a few seats separating us from holding a majority in the State House of Representatives, having experienced and proven leadership is vital," Love said in a statement. "After much thought and soul-searching, I feel that I can best serve my constituents, my neighbors and my fellow Alabamians by seeking reelection to the District 74 House seat."

Defeating several fellow Republicans in the 2008 primary and run-off elections for the 2nd Congressional District nomination, Love was narrowly defeated by .6% of the vote in a general election heavily targeted by both national parties.

Love was elected to the Alabama Legislature in November of 2002 and is currently serving his second term in office. He holds the position of Minority Whip in the Alabama Republican Caucus leadership and serves as the Ranking Republican member of the House Constitution and Elections Committee. He also serves on the Government Finance and Appropriations budget-writing committee.
