GOP Candidate for Alabama Governor Dies

Michael McCallister, a Republican gubernatorial candidate, was found dead over the weekend.

Pike County sheriff Russell Thomas says McCallister was found Sunday in his home when deputies did a welfare check.

Thomas says he hadn’t been heard from in a few days.

No foul play is suspected, and Thomas says McCallister was known to have health problems.

Our senior political reporter Tim Lennox recently sat down with McCallister in his recent Face 2 Face segment that recently aired on Alabama News Network.

McCallister was 69 years old.

ALGOP Chairman Terry Lathan made the following statement regarding the passing of ALGOP Gubernatorial Candidate Michael McAllister:
“The Alabama Republican Party is saddened to hear of the very sudden passing of ALGOP Gubernatorial Candidate Michael McAllister. We honor his willingness to be a citizen servant as he was seeking to be elected to a position in public office. Please join us as we lift up his family and friends in prayer during this very difficult time.”
