|Description||Get ready for Parker Griffith versus Mo Brooks, the rematch. Griffith said Thursday he will file papers Friday to run in the March 13 Republican primary against Brooks for the nomination as 5th Congressional District representative. |
Griffith, a retired physician and businessman, was elected to Congress as a Democrat in 2008 and changed parties in mid-term. Brooks defeated him in the 2010 Republican primary.
"When I changed parties, I hurt a lot of feelings," Griffith said Thursday. "I've had to go back and explain this is about jobs, about maintaining our community and making it a better place."
