JOSH SEGALL ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR CONGRESS


IN ALABAMA’S 3RD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
MONTGOMERY, AL –Josh Segall, the 2008 Democratic nominee for Congress in
Alabama’s 3rd district, announced today that he will mount a campaign against Mike
Rogers (R-Saks) in the 2010 Congressional election.

“It’s time for a new direction. I am a fiscal conservative who will work to
create and attract 21st Century jobs to east Alabama so that hardworking
people can get ahead,” said Segall.

“Alabama is suffering under irresponsible policies that bail out greedy


executives who created this mess and leave hardworking Alabama families
holding the bag. Rogers supported the Wall Street bailout, but did
nothing for Main Street Alabama. He voted to send Alabama jobs
overseas, when what we needed was a plan to create good jobs at home.
It’s time to stand up to special interest politics and put Alabama families
first once again,” said Segall.

“Rural Alabama has been suffering for a long time and this recession has
made it so even fewer of our children can live where they grew up. Rural
areas all over the country need to be reinvigorated. I will work with
Members of Congress who represent similar districts to make rural areas
strong again.”

Segall shocked political onlookers last year when he raised almost $1 million and
garnered over 46% of the vote against Rogers. This strong showing came despite a
late-entry into the race with just a few months for the first time candidate to
assemble a team, develop a fundraising base and build a district-wide grassroots
operation. Many political commentators felt that Segall would have prevailed but
for lack of time to get his message out
