Hannah won’t run for Congress

John Hannah won’t be seeking a Congressional seat despite talk coming from the Alabama GOP. Last week state GOP chair Mike Hubbard told the Huntsville Times that the Alabama football legend was considering a run to fill the soon-to-be vacant Alabama Fifth Congressional District.

Hannah told the Capstone Report this afternoon he was not running.

“I am not running,” he said. If you think it is Shermanesque. It is. He has other projects on his list of priorities at the moment.

John Hannah Entertainment is in the middle of promoting an event to help retired NFL players.

The Fourth & Goal Classic is a multi-day event with live entertainment and a celebrity golf tournament, and a silent auction. Proceeds benefit Fourth & Goal, which is a 501(c) 3 organization. The organization was founded by Bruce Laird to provide financial aid to retired players facing serious consequences. Hannah serves on the Fourth & Goal board of directors.

“I can’t walk out on this project,” Hannah told the Capstone Report.
