Wednesday, former state Senator and Republican congressional candidate for the open Alabama First Congressional district Bill Hightower said that impeachment is a “distraction.”
“The radical Left’s obsession with somehow invalidating the election of Donald Trump as President has gone too far,” Hightower said. “This distraction toward impeachment just creates another round of costly taxpayer funded investigations that will lead nowhere. It is high time this Congress stops these political games and starts doing the people’s business. We have so many other issues that need to be
addressed in this country, and spending more time and money on this obsession must stop.”
President Trump said Wednesday, “The witch hunt continues,” and called the case against him a “hoax.”
Bill Hightower is a south Alabama small businessman. When he was in the State Senate, Hightower pushed for smaller government and lower taxes. He sponsored legislation to change Alabama to a flat tax and to impose term limits on the Alabama legislature.
After college, Bill has worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies. After 9-11, Bill moved his family back to South Alabama. Today he now runs several small businesses. Hightower said that his business experience makes him uniquely qualified to contribute job-growing policies for hard-working families in Alabama.
He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Alabama and a master’s in business administration from Vanderbilt University.
As a boy, Bill worked on his grandparent’s farm, cleaned swimming pools, and also worked as a laborer on construction projects.
Hightower is married to Susan Binegar Hightower. They have three children and three grandchildren.
Hightower said that he is most proud of his role as husband and father.
