‘Rick & Bubba’ radio show’s Bill ‘Bubba’ Bussey: I’m supporting Scott Dawson, Will Ainsworth, too (AUDIO)

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the syndicated “Rick & Bubba” radio program, co-host Bill “Bubba” Bussey called out Yellowhammer News for highlighting his co-host Rick Burgess’ comments about the 2018 gubernatorial race and neglecting to mention Bussey was in “lockstep” with Burgess’ views.

Bussey and Burgess are both supporters of Republican gubernatorial hopeful Scott Dawson and Republican lieutenant gubernatorial hopeful Will Ainsworth.

The “Rick & Bubba” co-hosts were reflecting on a previous caller’s criticism of Burgess on the issue of global warming, to which Burgess noted he is often on the receiving end despite the two having the same opinion issues. Bussey stated that Burgess also tended to be the one showcased by news stories on the particular topic of Dawson’s run for governor.

“We have an opposite effect in other things,” Bussey said. “And one — we have a state news agency here called Yellowhammer News. We can talk on the air about the same topic — just like what you’re talking about. You may say a few more words than I do about it, whatever. But we’re together. We’re in lockstep on something. The headline will be ‘Rick Burgess says this.’ ‘Rick Burgess says that.’ ‘Rick Burgess man of the year.’ ‘Rick Burgess…’ And it is never ‘Rick and Bubba.’ You have that opposite effect.”

“It’s just like with Scott [Dawson],” he added. “Look, I’m supporting Scott just like you are. I support Will Ainsworth just like you are. The story will come out, ‘Rick Burgess says Will Ainsworth blah, blah, blah.’ ‘Rick Burgess says.'”
