Alabama Supreme Court Associate Justice Will Sellers, appointed to the court by Gov. Kay Ivey in May, announced today he will seek a full term in next year's election.

"Since my appointment, I have received an outpouring of support from my fellow lawyers and business leaders throughout Alabama," Sellers said in a campaign press release. "I thoroughly enjoy my work on the court, and it is a privilege to serve alongside Chief Justice Lyn Stuart and the other associate justices."

Ivey appointed Sellers to the seat previously held by Stuart. Ivey had appointed Stuart as chief justice to replace Roy Moore, who had been suspended for the remainder of his term and then resigned to run for the U.S. Senate.

Sellers graduated from Hillsdale College in 1985 and received his law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1988. Sellers was a lawyer with the Balch & Bingham firm in Montgomery until his appointment by Ivey.

Sellers was an Electoral College elector for Alabama in each of the last four elections. He has received endorsements from the Business Council of Alabama's political action committee and the Alabama Civil Justice Reform Committee.

Next year's primaries are June 5. Republicans hold all nine seats on the Supreme Court.
