“ProgressPAC does not take endorsements lightly. We are endorsing these candidates because of their proven track record of fairly interpreting and impartially applying the law while on the bench,” said ProgressPAC Chairman Mark Drew of Protective Life Corp. “Having a strong, fair, impartial, and predictable judicial branch is critical to our state and local efforts to attract and retain jobs and businesses. ProgressPAC is proud to support pro-business candidates who will make sure Alabama continues to flourish.”
