After iconic California burger chain In-N-Out’s donation of $25,000 to that state’s Republican Party was met with calls for boycotts on social media, Alabama state Sen. Phil Williams (R-Rainbow City) told the restaurant to “c’mon to Alabama.”
In-N-Out previously donated $30,000 to the California GOP in 2016 and 2017 without backlash. Eric Bauman, chair of the California Democratic Party, joined calls for the boycott and added, “[L]et Trump and his cronies support these creeps.”
While the nearest locations of the burger joint to Alabama are currently in the heart of Texas, Williams is encouraging that to change.

Williams, an outgoing state senator who chose not to seek re-election to a third term, is also chair of the Etowah County Republican Party and on the Alabama Republican Party’s State Executive Committee.
