TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill reports that Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush will make a campaign stop in Alabama; at the Alabama vs. LSU football game. The game is at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on November 7, 2015.

It’s part of the candidate’s “SEC Tailgating with Jeb,” in which he will stop at four SEC schools on game days.

“We are excited to have Governor Bush back in our state! Seven of the top ten Republican candidates have made campaign stops in Alabama, which is unprecedented for our state,” said Secretary of State John Merrill. “When this many Presidential candidates are choosing to visit and re-visit Alabama, it is proof the SEC Primary is working. The main goal of this effort is to create an environment that forces candidates to appeal to an even larger and more complete constituency than they currently do, and I am proud to see our state receiving the attention it deserves. It is so important that Alabamians have the opportunity to interact with all candidates in order to learn who best reflects their views. As Secretary of State, I will continue to position Alabama and the South as a place where Presidential candidates are willing to make an effort to visit and meet our remarkable people.”

Additional details on Bush’s visit will be released closer to his visit.
