DNC on Alabama Primary Results

Following the results of the Alabama primary, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:


“Congratulations to Alabama Democrats on a successful primary election. This year there were more than 70 black women running up and down the ticket – a historic number – and proving yet again that they are the backbone of our party. In 2017, Democrats made an early investment in Alabama, mobilizing and organizing across the state, and it paid off – we made history by electing the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the U.S. Senate in almost 25 years. In 2018, they’re taking center stage by stepping up, running for office, and providing a stark contrast to the failed Republican leadership in Alabama. From refusing to expand Medicaid to allowing the state to fall further behind in education, Alabama simply can’t afford four more years of Republican leadership.”
