“And just like President Trump, the people of Alabama know full well that the last thing our state or nation needs is another Schumer/Pelosi puppet in Washington!” the Moore campaign stated.

WASHINGTON—Tuesday, January 3, 2017, a number of protestors from the NAACP held a sit in in US Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) Mobile offices.

Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler (R) reported that the protestors were demanding that Sessions withdraw from consideration for US Senate. The NAACP occupiers were finally arrested in Sessions’ office after refusing a request by the property owner that they leave.

State Representative Tim Wadsworth (R-Arley) commented on the matter, stating, “In Mobile, Alabama, there is a sit in at Senator Sessions office. They have a right to conduct a sit down outside but not inside which results in disrupted government operations. Would the media let these sit ins by Trump supporters be allowed without negative press. I don’t think so. I firmly believe that America was at a cross roads on the direction of our country on November 8 when President Trump won the election. I believe our country is moving in a positive direction with or without the non supporters.” Read More
