Brewbaker to run for state Senate

Montgomery businessman and former state Rep. Dick Brewbaker, a Republican, will kick off his state Senate campaign on Thursday in Wetumpka.
Brewbaker, a member of the town council in Pike Road, will be running for the District 25 seat currently occupied by Sen. Larry Dixon, R-Montgomery. Dixon is in his seventh term in the Senate.
Dixon said Tuesday he did not know if he was running, but feels Brewbaker is trying to push him into a decision.
"I don't like to feel like I'm being pushed to make a decision with a year left to go and another legislative session left to go (in my term)," he said. "Right now, if push comes to shove, I plan on running again."
District 25 includes portions of Elmore and Montgomery counties.
Brewbaker will announce his candidacy at the courthouse in Wetumpka.
