Fifth district congressional race heats up and more on Alabama Politics This Week

Radio talk show host Dale Jackson and CEO of 256Today Mecca Musick take you through Alabama’s biggest political stories, including:

— Did U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) want to raise your taxes?

— How much, if any, help did U.S. Senate candidate Katie Britt give former U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) in getting elected in 2017?

— Will the U.S. House of Representatives District 5 race in north Alabama get uglier as we head towards a primary runoff?

Talk 99.5’s Tim Melton joins the show to discuss how the candidates in the U.S. Senate race are being received, attack ads, the January 6 commission and everything happening in Alabama politics this week.

Jackson closes the show with a “Parting Shot” directed at people who decided painting a Civil War cannon in “Pride” colors would be unifying.

Watch:

Dale Jackson is a contributing writer to Yellowhammer News and hosts a talk show from 5-9AM weekdays on WVNN and on Talk 99.5 from 10AM to noon.
