Anthony Daniels Joins 2nd District Race: In Huntsville, Alabama, the competition for the newly established U.S. congressional seat in Alabama’s 2nd district is gaining momentum, with 13 Democrats and eight Republicans already qualified for the race. This district covers Montgomery and areas near Mobile.

State House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, representing Huntsville, has entered the race, expressing his commitment to making a larger impact on the state at the federal level. While he currently resides outside the district, Daniels emphasized his familiarity with and connection to the region, having been raised there and attended school.

When asked about representing both North and South Alabama, Daniels highlighted his experience as House Minority Leader, stating, “Do you ever really leave home, especially when you’ve been engaged as I’ve been engaged through work with the D.O.D. and others.
