ALGOP chairman returns from election strategy sessions in D.C.

Chairman John Wahl flew to Washington, D.C. over the recent weekend for planning and strategy sessions.

The Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee elected John Wahl as ALGOP chairman.

Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl flew to Washington, D.C. over the recent weekend for planning and strategy sessions on the upcoming midterm elections. The trip was part of finalizing the Republican Party’s 2022 election priorities. During the four day trip he attended multiple, high-level meetings with different political organizations.

“The Alabama Republican Party is ready to help our candidates at home, as well as around the country. We won’t be sitting on the sidelines taking our state’s supermajority for granted. We’ve been working hard for the people of Alabama, and doing our part to help partners in other states so we can take back the U.S. House and Senate. Too much is at stake, and we must do all we can to restore America and reign in the out-of-control liberal policies of the Biden Administration,” said Wahl.

This week, Wahl finalized plans with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The Alabama Republican Party has been involved in a joint fundraising committee with the NRSC, geared at helping U.S. Senate nominees from around the country.

“The ALGOP has been working hard to make sure our candidates have the resources they need. Republicans have the opportunity to flip several seats this year, and I hope our joint fundraising committee will play an important role in gaining a majority in the U.S. Senate,” he said.

The Chairman also spent time with the Republican National Committee. The RNC’s involvement is crucial in the ALGOP’s Restore America campaigns in Georgia and other states, helping Republican efforts stay on the same page. There could be as many as 100 volunteers from the Mighty Alabama Strike Force traveling to Georgia to help Herschel Walker’s campaign for U.S. Senate.

“It’s exciting to have so many volunteers from across the state of Alabama joining in the fight to take back the Senate in 2022. This election cycle is going to be critical if we have any chance to save our economy and restore the America we know and love. Herschel Walker is a special candidate, who understands the American dream and the struggles facing the middle class because of bad government decisions. He has energized people across the country with his common sense conservative message, and we look forward to helping him win this November.” he said.

This trip finalized much of the work started at the RNC Winter and Summer Meetings in Salt Lake City, and Chicago.

“We had the opportunity to review election forecast data, and really look at how we can best help our candidates. It’s so important that we know where to best spend our resources – both financial and boots on the ground,” he said.

The Alabama Republican Party has been working hard in preparation for the midterm election, and are in the middle of implementing one of the Party’s strongest general election campaigns ever. So far this cycle, the ALGOP:

  • set a one day political fundraiser record of $1.1 million at the Party’s Cullman Trump Rally.
  • elected the State’s first African-American Republican to the State House
  • launched an Outreach Coalition to minority voters
  • started the Restore America campaign to help Republican candidates win across the country
  • will be targeting over 40 candidates across the state of Alabama in one of the largest financial commitments in the history of the ALGOP.
