Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan issued this statement following the results of Tuesday’s presidential election.

“The Alabama Republican Party is thrilled with the results of this year’s election. We look forward to having a Republican president return to the highest office in the land.”

“President Trump will make our nation stronger with his commitment to upholding the Constitution and protecting Americans through conservative policies. We know he will hold true to his campaign promise and put America First. Next to his Inauguration Day, we anxiously await President Trump’s Supreme Court appointments.”

“We are proud of the prominent role that Alabama has played in this election with United States Senator Jeff Sessions helping to lead Mr. Trump’s team. The Alabama Republican Party sponsored more than 100 volunteers that spent over a week in Ohio and Florida. Our team knocked on thousands of doors to help secure the wins in these states.”

“Along with President-elect Trump, the American people made their choice clear and voted to keep a Republican majority in the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. The people rejected the skewed national media message and chose a conservative path.”

“It is a new day in our nation, one filled with hope of what is to come. While we have a copious amount of work to do to repair the last eight years of damaging liberal policies, I am confident that Donald Trump will rebuild and strengthen our nation.”

“In Alabama, we are proud of the results of numerous Republican races in our state. ¬†We added multiple victories in our counties by defeating Democrat incumbents and Independents.”

“We congratulate all of our candidates who volunteered to serve by running for office. We also encourage the citizens of our state to stay engaged with their elected officials to hold them accountable throughout their decision making processes.”
