Opinion: The Republican Exodus from Congress, by Michalle Cottle. (The New York Times, 7/31/2019)
Say goodbye to 64-year-old Bradley Byrne, who represents Alabama's 1st congressional district. He announced a run for the U.S. Senate on February 20, 2019.
Jo Bonner resigned from the seat in 2013 to take a position with the University of Alabama. As you can see, it's a safely red district.
