On Wednesday, the Democratic nominee for Senate Doug Jones reportedly said, “I’m tired of Alabama being an embarrassment around the country.”
Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead pounced on that comment.
“Alabama needs a senator in Washington who is proud of this state, someone who will be a strong ambassador for Alabama,” Armistead said. “We don’t need an Obama-like senator who goes on an apology tour for Alabama like President Obama did for America. Doug Jones’ comments are reminiscent of the condescending remarks made by Barack Obama about people who bitterly cling to their guns and religion.”
