“I have known and worked with Gary Palmer for years during my time in the Legislature and as Governor. He is the type of leader we should be excited to send to Washington. Alabamians know our federal government is in desperate need of reform, and I believe Gary will develop policies to do just that. I know Gary is capable of this because he has already done it for Alabama.
I appointed him to the Alabama Commission on Improving State Government, which helped me and other state leaders identify over $1 billion dollars in annual savings for taxpayers by reducing the cost of state government and increasing efficiency. This type of leadership is exactly what taxpayers need in Washington, that is why I am pleased to endorse Gary Palmer for Congress. ”
Gov. Robert Bentley
Governor of Alabama
“The time is now for those of us who believe that the founding fathers vision for this country was and still is correct to either become candidates or find and support candidates who share that same vision. Gary Palmer understands the original intent of our founding fathers concerning the role of the federal government. He has real solutions on how to return our country to the path that has produced the highest standard of living in the history of the world. Gary Palmer doesn't just see the problems our country faces, but understands the answers to those problems. Gary is the type of candidate this country desperately needs at this point in our nation’s history.”

You get to know your opponents on the campaign trail. If there’s one thing that’s clear about Gary Palmer, it’s that he’s in the business of getting conservative results and doing the right thing, no matter who blocks the path. Gary’s tirelessly advocated for conservative values in Alabama for over two decades. He’s a veteran of the movement, and he’ll be able to make a difference on the first day in Congress.
I have no doubt that he’ll go to Washington and be a consistent, rock-solid conservative who won’t kowtow at a time when we’re facing an onslaught on the American Dream. He’ll fight to repeal Obamacare and stand up to the Obama EPA’s war on coal.
Former Congressional Candidate

"Gary would be a wonderful representative for us. He is very knowledgeable on the big issues we are facing and has the best understanding of the needed solutions. His years of heading up the Alabama Policy Institute with its excellent activities and research has made him very well grounded. Gary’s moral standards and values are desperately needed. I cannot think of a person better equipped to represent us. Let me encourage you to strongly support his campaign and to urge
others to join you. God bless you."

He is smart, hard-working and principled. He will be an articulate and effective leader in Washington. And, you can be sure of one thing: the bright lights of Washington will not lure him away from the rock solid political principles he has ably advocated for years.
I am pleased to endorse his election.

Founder of Wallbuilders
"Gary Palmer has been on the front lines fighting for lower taxes, less government, the right to life and family values for years. He knows what government can do, and just as importantly, he knows what it cannot do. Now more than ever, America needs representatives in Washington who understand the proper, limited role of government.
The voters of Alabama will have no greater champion for their commonsense,
conservative values than Gary Palmer.
He has led the fight for faith, family and freedom in Birmingham, and we need his courage and leadership in Washington. I am proud to call Gary a friend, and I am honored to endorse his campaign for Alabama's Sixth Congressional District."

"In Alabama, Gary has been involved in transitioning Alabama from a People’s Republic of Democrats to a free market, limited government system. He has been a conservative ideas man at the Alabama Policy Institute. He has been willing to stand up to Republicans in Alabama and will, no doubt, do the same in Washington."
“We are pleased to endorse Gary Palmer for Congress in the 6th District of Alabama. These are challenging times. Our economy has been decimated. The culture has been challenged beyond all reasonable limits. The strong, conservative men and women elected in 2010 and 2012 need reinforcements. Gary Palmer has compiled a consistent record while serving as a policy leader in Alabama. His position on the life issue reflects his concern for mother and child. Furthermore, his support for marriage as between one man and one woman is supported by the majority of Americans. We are confident Gary will continue to be a strong advocate for limited government, for individual and religious liberties and for traditional family values. We are, once again, pleased to offer Family Research Council Action PAC’s endorsement of Gary Palmer for Congress.”
