State Sen. Steve Livingston has announced he will seek a third term in office. Livingston said he will qualify in the Republican Primary, set for May 24, 2022.
“It has been my pleasure to represent the people of District 8,” said Livingston. “We have accomplished many great things, however, now we need to turn our focus to ensuring that the federal government overreach of the Biden Administration is prevented. I intend to stand up and a champion for Alabama.”

“As a conservative and a business owner, I will continue to fight to protect our Alabama values,” said Livingston. “I ask the voters of Jackson, DeKalb and Madison counties to trust me to be their senator for another term.”
In the Senate, Livingston chairs the Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Development Committee and serves on the Agriculture Conservation and Forestry, Finance and Taxation General Fund, Rules, Banking and Insurance, Local Legislation for Madison County and Transportation and Energy and Tourism committees.
