Carl will be running in Alabama’s new First District, which will include Covington County in the 2024 election.

“Today, I’m proud to announce I am filing for reelection to continue representing the people of Alabama’s First Congressional District in Congress,” Carl said.

“At a time when our borders are being overrun, crime is on the rise in cities across America, and Joe Biden continues leading our country down the wrong path, this country needs more staunch conservatives like me who will deliver results and never back down from the fight.

“I’m proud of the work my team and I have accomplished already for AL-01. Whether it’s our efforts to secure the border, slash wasteful government spending, stop overreach by the Biden admin, and stand firm against any efforts to take away our Constitutional rights, we’ve got a lot of work to be done in Washington, and the stakes are simply too high for us to let our foot off the gas and give up on the fight to save this country.

“Serving Alabama’s First Congressional District in Washington has been the honor of a lifetime, and I am excited to have new counties across the Wiregrass in our district. I’ve already been on the ground in every county in the district, and I’ve been overwhelmed with strong support from folks in every community.

The Republican primary will be held on March 5, 2024.

Carl has already been endorsed by nearly 30 state lawmakers and local leaders in AL-01, and he raised $257,474 towards his reelection campaign in the third quarter of 2023.
