Alabama PAC Trustees endorse DeMarco in District 6 race

One of the most watched races this fall will be for the seat currently held by Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL). With the primary two months away, there are seven people vying for the seat on the Republican side. The LSCU Alabama PAC board of trustees will endorse Paul DeMarco in the race. DeMarco is currently in the Alabama House of Representatives and has served two terms. The LSCU board will meet next week to vote on formally endorsing DeMarco.

In meeting with the League last week, DeMarco expressed his support for the credit union tax exemption. He is in favor of decreasing regulatory burden under Dodd-Frank and the CFPB. Additionally, he said he was very interested in learning more about raising the arbitrary member business lending cap, but wanted to ensure that he read any legislation before committing to the issue. The League sent a candidate questionnaire to each of the candidates and DeMarco's credit union support was reiterated in his answers on the questionnaire.

DeMarco has been in the State House since 2005 and re-elected twice. He is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and in House leadership. He graduated from Auburn and received a law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law. 

The Republican Primary is June 3. Also on the Republican ballot is State Sen. Scott Beason, Will Brooke, Dr. Chad Mathis, Gary Palmer, Tom Vigneulle, and Robert Shattuck.
