Deborah Bell Paseur to Challenge Lynn Greer in Alabama’s 2nd House District

  |   By: Rumor Mill     |   Rumors

Sources familiar with Alabama Democratic Party politics tell SHP that former judge Deborah Bell Paseur is expected to challenge Republican incumbent Lynn Greer for the Alabama House of Representatives District 2 seat.

Sources have further suggested that the announcement should come within the next two weeks.

Paseur unsuccessfully ran for a seat on the Alabama Supreme Court in 2008, losing to Republican Greg Shaw. Together, the two candidates spent almost $4 million, with a conservative-interest group from Virginia spending nearly $1 million attacking Paseur.

Paseur formerly served as District Court Judge in Lauderdale County from 1981 until 2008.
