Sen. Doug Jones, Alabama’s first Democratic senator in a quarter-century, is set to embark on his first statewide tour this week, planning to hit locations in Mobile, Montgomery, Mobile, Birmingham and Selma.
Jones will visit military bases and installations, rural hospitals and clinics, infrastructure and military and military contractors.
“It’s been a privilege to represent Alabama in Washington, but there’s nothing like getting home and hearing from folks first-hand,” Jones said of the trip. “I’m eager to hit the road and visit with as many Alabamians across the state as I can next week. We’re going to focus on the issues that are most important to our communities, from healthcare to jobs to education.”
