Tuesday, November 8, 2016, shocked the political world with a crushing electoral college win. Trump won all of the states that Mitt Romney won as well as some states that had not supported a Republican since 1988 and 1984. A number of voices commented on the surprising election results.
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) said in a statement, “Congratulations to President-elect Trump, the next President of the United States, on his election to our nation’s highest office. The majority of the people of Alabama supported Mr. Trump with their vote and by doing so have placed their humble trust in him to lead our country. While we as Americans certainly disagree on various policies, we must all agree that our country has suffered under the weight of a divisive and contentious campaign season. Mr. Trump will soon be the leader of all of our country, and every citizen, and I look forward to supporting his leadership. Americans have also elected a record number of Republican Governors to lead our states. I will be joining my colleagues in working with the Trump Administration to create a strong economy, great jobs and abundant opportunities for every American.”
