Hagan has busy week of campaigning


Democratic Congressional candidate Mallory Hagan is attempting to cover a lot of ground in personal appearances as she campaigns across the 3rd Congressional District this week.

“This week was a stark reminder of how important this election is for every American,” Hagan said. “As Senator McCain reminded us, “Americans never quit. Americans never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history.” And he’s right. Senator John McCain’s final words reminded us that American democracy is incredibly resilient, but only so long as we take the responsibility to participate and listen to each other. To put it simply, we cannot think that any one of us can make America great on our own. Our nation is about what we can all do – together.”

“From winning world wars and ending humanitarian crises, to creating a place where you can rise out of poverty and reach amazing heights, to building (and rebuilding) the greatest economy the world has known; our success is borne out of a spirit that dwells inside every American,” Hagan said.

Last week Hagan attended a meeting of the Calhoun County Young Democrats. There Hagan spoke with voters and community members about the importance of this election. Hagan said that this year’s election will determine if we get more of the same, or if we choose actionable change for our communities. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tuscaloosa Mayor Walter “Walt” Maddox also attended the Calhoun County event.

On Wednesday, Miss Hagan attended the Auburn job and internship fair where students learn about all the different opportunities available during and after college.

Hagan is recruiting volunteers. “If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about how political campaigns work, drop us a line and we’ll let you know what you can do to get engaged in this exciting race. There’s still time to make a difference before November 6th.”

On Wednesday night the Hagan campaign held their first Campaign Cookout of the fall. Their next cookout will be on September 12th.

On Friday, Hagan and her team went to the Auburn versus Opelika High School football game to talk to voters and enjoy this annual matchup between two great teams. Hagan will be at many more local sporting events around the district, between now and November 6.

On Tuesday, Hagan will hold a rally with Congressman Swalwell in Tuskegee from 2:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1200 W Montgomery Rd, Tuskegee, AL 36083.
