James lands McClurkin as vice chair for gubernatorial bid

Republican state Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin of Indian Springs has been named vice chairwoman of
Tim James’ campaign for governor.

McClurkin says she agreed to take a leadership role in James’ campaign because he is a successful entrepreneur with a conservative, no-nonsense outlook on government.

McClurkin served as Alabama co-chair of Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign. The former Arkansas governor led Alabama’s Republican presidential primary last February.
