BIRMINGHAM – Coming off a string of endorsements from major conservative business groups, Iraq War veteran Bryan Taylor released the first ad of his campaign for Alabama Chief Justice today. Titled “Uphold the Constitution,” the 30-second spot highlights his military service, conservative judicial philosophy, and underscores his commitment to applying the law as written and upholding the Constitution.

“I’m the only conservative in this race. I’m the only candidate not bankrolled by liberal special interests who want to influence our courts. We have too many liberal judges in the country. We don’t need another one as chief justice here in Alabama. As a military prosecutor I protected our freedoms in Iraq and as chief justice I’ll protect our constitutional freedoms here at home,” stated Taylor.

Full text of the ad:

Liberal judges are using the courts to advance their woke agenda.

I’m conservative Bryan Taylor. I’ll follow the law as written and never legislate from the bench.

Bryan Taylor fought for our country in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star.A Trump-tough conservative, patriot, and constitutional lawyer, Bryan Taylor will fight to end the weaponization of our justice system.

As Chief Justice, I’ll be guided by my faith and fearlessly uphold the Constitution.

Bryan Taylor: Conservative for chief justice.
