New GOP leaders looks to make Republican gains

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Alabama's Republicans have a new leader, a GOP veteran who once served in the legislature.

Former State Senator Bill Armistead from Columbiana won the job over Montgomery Representative Jay Love.
Armistead says Republicans cannot afford to sit back after their historic gains and that they need to keep driving out Democrats from elected positions. He says the charge will start next year in county elections.
