Ala. candidate draws attention for shotgun giveaway during his campaign
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
A candidate for the Alabama legislature is getting a lot of attention for a unique giveaway.
If you visit the campaign website of former state senator Steve French you can sign up for a drawing for a Remington shotgun. French's website says "Steve is a big supporter of your Second Amendment Right, so his campaign is giving away a Remington shotgun," or a gift certificate that can be used to purchase one.
French is one of four candidates for House District 46 running in the Republican primary June 3.
His contest is limited to residents of three cities in the district: Hoover, Homewood and Mountain Brook.
Reporter Christy Hutchings is following up on the story and will have a report at 9 and 10.
