Marsh has been in the Senate since 1998. Since 2010, he has served as the president pro tem. The Republican primary is nearly a year away. No primary opponents for Marsh have emerged so far in the race.
No Democratic candidates for the seat have announced yet, said Alabama Democratic Party chairwoman Nancy Worley. Marsh will face a Democratic opponent in 2014, Worley said.
