Congressman Johnson Campaigns for Doug Jones in Alabama Senate Race
Rep. Johnson visits three churches – urges voters to get to polls: ‘Take your friends & family’
TUSKEGEE, ALA. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) campaigned in Alabama for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones. Johnson visited three churches in Tuskegee to help get the vote out.
Jones won a tight race with accused child molester and disgraced judge Roy Moore, a Republican, in a December 12 special election for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Johnson said the right man won.
“Doug stands for equal pay for equal work, voting rights, strong public education and access to affordable, quality healthcare,” said Johnson. “Doug believes in science and will work to slow or reverse the impact of climate change. Our nation needs Doug in the U.S. Senate fighting for working families and the middle class.”
Rep. Johnson and his wife, DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson, visited Washington Chapel AME Church, Greater Saint Mark Missionary Baptist Church and Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Tuskegee.
The Johnsons also visited with Tuskegee Mayor Pro Tem Annie Brown and city councilmembers Shirley Curry and Chris Lee.
