Ala. Democratic Party responds to State of the State Address
This evening, Alabama Democratic Party Chairman, Judge Mark Kennedy, responded to Governor Bentley's State of the State address.
"All the rhetoric in the world wouldn't be enough to hide the truth from Alabamians. The truth is that Governor Bentley continues to fail to lead our state and, worse, his party—which has made clear that partisan politics will continue to come before the most pressing issues facing Alabama.
As a result of his failure to lead, it's clear that we are now facing yet another session dominated by extreme legislation targeting women, children, the poor and the elderly and policies aimed at lining the pockets of Republican fat cat donors.
Tonight, its more clear than ever that Alabama needs a Governor and leadership in the State House that cares about the future of the state—not just upcoming elections and ensuring money making opportunities for a select few."
