I'm a progressive Democrat from Alabama running for Senate because I believe we need more empathy and integrity in Washington. From the economy to climate change to social justice — the problems that we’re facing today are ones that are going to be faced by future generations. I’m asking you to give me a seat at the table to help find solutions. I’m running because I believe Alabama deserves better and we need a fresh face in Washington. We need answers to questions that people aren’t even asking. People are sick and tired of being sick and tired. 

I believe I’m the best choice for this election because I have dedicated my life to public service and have worked in the nonprofit sector for the past decade to affect positive change. I am a passionate progressive with experience in policy making and a reputation for speaking truth to power. 

We have a real shot at shaking things up and sending a message to the establishment that we're fed up with how they've been running things. As Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Our fates are tied together. Join us to fight for progress and take on President Trump's regressive agenda.

  • Robin M. Daugherty endorsed

    “Thomas and I are supporting Michael Hansen because his platform includes all the Progressive ideals that are so meaningful for us. And it's time for Alabama to come out of the political dark ages and support someone who will put people over party and money.”

  • Lori Wright Smith endorsed

    “Michael Hansen is exactly what Alabama, and the United States, needs right now. He is speaking about real issues, that affect Americans right now.”

  • Elton Todd Adcock endorsed

    “I agree that continuing to elect the same people to represent us will continue to yield the same results. In the last few years all three branches of our state government have been disgraced by the persons whom have held them. Roy Moore even has been the audacity to run for the US Senate. He and his cohorts have some how convinced good people that God is involved in politics and public policy. The laws of God and the laws of man are two distinctly different things. I am sickened by the recent photo of President Trump praying in the Oval Office while evangelical ministers lay their hands upon him. The Republican candidates for Senator from my beloved State are running over each other to gain the endorsement of this hypocritical, Russian conspiring, lie spewing traitor. It is time to fight back and employ new guards for our future liberties.”

  • Richard Meriwether endorsed

    “I support Michael Hansen because his views are well within my belief system and I agree wholeheartedly with them. Also, I admire his courage and conviction...”

  • Clint Hancock endorsed

    “We need more men like this out there.. Lets help him get to Washington..”

  • Joe Winans endorsed

    “I have lived in the land of perpetual potential for 30years. It is time we move ahead. I believe electing Michael Hansen would be a good place to start.”

  • Edward Lainsbury endorsed

    “Finally a candidate who has my values!! Let's help this guy win!”

  • Frank Mileto endorsed

    “Alabama needs a clear alternative to the regressive Republicans.”
