Troy is uniquely situated to bring together the rural and urban sectors of Alabama’s Second Congressional district that stretches from the state Capitol of Montgomery in the north through the rural Wiregrass in the south. Born and raised in the small, south Alabama town of Elba, which sits in the heart of Alabama’s second congressional district, Troy King was ten years old when an event changed his life path.
“I’ll never forget it,” he said. “My dad sold real estate in Elba. In 1979, that was a hard job. Inflation was skyrocketing. Interest rates were high. No one was buying houses. My dad called a family conference and told us, ‘We are going to have to make some sacrifices in our family’s budget. There is simply no money.’ I realized then that families like mine needed someone to fight for them. I have never forgotten the struggles my dad faced to make ends meet. It made me a champion for those whose voices, too often, are not heard. It’s personal this time. Everything I have done before has prepared for this moment to charge into the heart of the beast and to stand up immovably for the little guys across this nation who have been told to go and quietly sit in the corner for too long. This time, we will no longer sit silently by while the left wing destroys our country!
Troy has spent his entire career working for the people of Alabama, serving two Alabama governors and serving a six-year tenure as Attorney General. Troy is no stranger to a fight and has never been one to back down from standing up for those things he believes in most. Troy does not just talk about his conservative credentials, he has a record of burnishing them – he defended the Second Amendment and passed Alabama’s Castle Law that took away the obligation of Alabamians to run away from armed criminals before using force to defend themselves and he wrote Brody’s Law, which, for the first time, allowed criminals who harm a pregnant mother to also be charged for the injuries they cause to the unborn baby.
