|U.S. House, Alabama, District 1|
Hillyer announced his plan to run for the 1st district seat on May 23, 2013, just hours after Jo Bonner announced he would be leaving Congress. Bonner's resignation, as of August 15, 2013, came as the result of a decision to take a position as vice chancellor of government and economic development at the University of Alabama.
Hillyer most recently worked for The American Spectator, The Washington Times and The Washington Examiner. He previously worked as an aide to former Louisiana Rep. Bob Livingston and for the editorial page of the Mobile Press-Register.
Hillyer ran for the U.S. House representing the 1st Congressional District of Alabama. The election was held to replace Jo Bonner, who announced his resignation on May 23, 2013, in order to take a position as vice chancellor of government and economic development at the University of Alabama.
He was defeated in the Republican primary on September 24, 2013. No candidate secured more than 50 percent of the total vote, requiring a runoff primary on November 5, 2013. Bradley Byrne and Dean Young were the top two winners, and will face off in the runoff primary. The winner will advance to the general election on December 17, 2013.
