ALGOP Chairman Terry Lathan issued the following statement following Senator Doug Jones’s remarks during the virtual Democrat National Convention:
“Senator Doug Jones embraced the ‘left of left’ at the DNC Convention by joining Bernie Sanders to endorse Joe Biden. The message from Michelle Obama was one of despair. Senator Jones lined up with his teammates who demand tax hikes, Medicare for All, ending private healthcare, taxpayers paying for abortions and illegal immigrants, defunding the police, ending border wall security and a focus on locking down gun ownership – although they purposely didn’t mention their beliefs to the nation.
“Alabama is a deep red state where the vast majority of our voters uphold traditional, conservative values. By agreeing to participate in this ‘Liberals on Parade’ event, Senator Jones has clearly signaled who he aligns his core values with as he also repeatedly thumbs his nose at the majority of Alabamians who reject this radical platform and policies.
“Doug Jones said, ‘It’s not about what side of the aisle we are on. It’s about whether or not we are on the side of the people.’ Yet, he walks down the aisle of ignoring the majority over and over again. Alabama is tired of being ignored by Doug Jones. Our state is anxious to vote for a true conservative who will not ignore their voices anymore. Along with President Trump and Tommy Tuberville, we will reset this seat for Alabama on November 3rd.”
