MONTGOMERY — The Alabama Republican Party’s Steering Committee has joined the chorus of state leaders calling for Gov. Robert Bentley’s immediate resignation over the fallout from his relationship with a former top political adviser.
The party’s 21-member main governing body passed a resolution Sunday night calling for Bentley to step down from his office. The party’s call follows similar demands from State Republican leaders last week, including House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, R-Madison, and Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh, R-Anniston.
