MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - It's no surprise Mitt Romney is favored to Alabama on November 6th. It's other swing states the Republican Party is concerned about, and now, Alabama Republicans are being invited to spread the GOP's message.
Tuesday, the Alabama Republican Party launched the 'Alabama Battleground Patriots' initiative. Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and T.J. Maloney, Executive Director of the Alabama Republican Party, discussed the push to local Republicans at the Madison and Limestone Counties Headquarters in Madison.
"November 6th is reaching up upon us pretty quickly, and at the state Republican party, our number one focus is winning from the courthouse to the White House in 2012," said Maloney.
"But as important as it is to elect Republicans to office in Alabama courthouses, it is equally important that we put a Republican in the White House this November. The Presidential election will ultimately be won in swing states such as Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, and that's why I created the Alabama Battleground Patriots," Maloney added. "Through this program, Alabama Republicans will be able to travel to the states that need our help the most, working hand-in-hand with the RNC and the Romney/Ryan campaign."
There are three trips scheduled from Sunday, October 21 through Saturday, October 27. Two groups will depart from Birmingham, one for Charlotte, North Carolina and another to Virginia Beach, Virginia. The third group will leave from Baldwin County and go to Jacksonville, Florida.
Congressman Brooks will lead a fourth trip from Huntsville to Dayton, Ohio from Wednesday, October 24th through Sunday, October 28th.
