Alabama Democrat Segall Plans Rematch Against Rep. Rogers

Every election cycle, a handful of congressional candidates who fell short in the previous election plan rematch campaigns, confident that an earlier start and better preparation will lead them to success the second time around.

One rematch-minded candidate in the 2010 cycle is Alabama Democratic lawyer Josh Segall, who announced Tuesday that he will challenge Republican Rep. Mike D. Rogers in the 3rd District, which includes part of Montgomery and most of Alabama’s border with Georgia.

Segall, who won 46 percent of the vote against Rogers in 2008, said in a statement that “it’s time for a new direction” and that he is a “fiscal conservative who will work to create and attract 21st century jobs to east Alabama so that hardworking people can get ahead.”
