Barber to Announce Candidacy
Barber said in a press release that a month of consulting with his family and his exploratory committee, has fueled his decision to run for Congress.
"My family, friends and supporters have discussed my possible candidacy at length, and we've decided that the time is right for me to run for Congress," Barber said.
"Washington spending is out of control. Congress and President Obama are financing their exorbitant spending by buying American debt with American dollars. They are inflating our currency, and leading our economy down a road that we can no longer follow.
"It doesn't take a genius to understand that you can't spend more money than you have for long without serious repercussions," he said.
Barber says that Congress needs a small business owner's common sense.
"I will be a voice of reason and fiscal responsibility, and I will fight for federalist principles and Alabama's limited government values," he said.
