Scott Dawson ally ‘Rick & Bubba’ show’s Rick Burgess: Patricia Todd tweet ‘might have been a good thing’ for GOP (AUDIO)
Thursday on his syndicated “Rick & Bubba” radio show program, co-host Rick Burgess, a supporter of Republican gubernatorial hopeful Scott Dawson, speculated on what might have caused Alabama State Rep. Patricia Todd (D-Birmingham) to post a tweet questioning the sexuality of Gov. Kay Ivey.
Burgess’s comments were in response to a caller’s remarks about Todd’s tweet. The caller suggested the tweet set Ivey up for the sympathy vote in next month’s Republican gubernatorial primary, and he went on to add that Ivey would be an easier opponent for Democrats in November.
Burgess made the case that Todd may have tipped off Democrats’ strategy for November in a possible general election setting, which he said was a good thing for Republicans.
“I thought the same thing,” he replied. “When you saw what happened, I think that it might have been a good thing for the Republican Party because, in my opinion, this is what they were going to do in October. And I think this particular person, Democrat, got angry and kind of launched before this gameplan was supposed to launch.”
“But I feel very confident that was coming from the Democrats,” he added. “They would act like it was not them doing it. But that was going to happen in October if Kay Ivey were to be the nominee. And I think that that strategy just got outed, no pun intended, quicker. So, I think the Democrats showed their hand a little bit on that.”
