ALGOP’s Lathan on Doug Jones’ ‘One Alabama’ slogan: ‘The only one he’s listening to is himself’
After Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) unveiled his new “One Alabama” reelection slogan during his campaign kickoff event on Sunday, reaction poured in from conservatives saying that Jones had proven himself to be anything but a moderate during his short stint in the U.S. Senate.
This included Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan, who reminded voters of Jones’ declaration made twice previously that representing the majority of Alabamians is not “the be all to end all.”
“Senator Doug Jones claims to be for ‘One Alabama’ but during his short tenure he’s proven the only one he’s listening to is himself,” Lathan said.
“Time and again he keeps ignoring the will of the majority of Alabamians – who overwhelmingly support President Trump and the administration’s agenda – by defiantly voting NO on the President’s nominees and policies,” she continued.
The ALGOP chair then provided a list of high-profile examples of Jones opposing President Donald Trump’s “nominees and policies:”
“Senator Jones should rename his motto ‘One and Done for Alabama’. We are confident the voters of our great state will reset this seat with a Republican on November 3, 2020,” Lathan concluded.
