Alabama Democratic Party has not endorsed a Presidential candidate in the March 1 Primary

The Alabama Democratic Party has NOT endorsed a candidate for President in the March 1 Primary.  On Saturday, February 13, following the minority caucus' (ADC) Luncheon, WSFA (Channel 12), an affiliate of the Raycom Network, ran a false story that the Party had endorsed Hillary Clinton.  Party Chair Nancy Worley called the reporter after she heard the story Saturday evening and asked for a correction.  She was assured the story would be taken down and corrected. 

Unfortunately other Raycom Network affiliates ran the story on Sunday with the false information.  ADC, the Alabama Democratic Conference, or minority caucus chaired by Dr. Joe Reed, endorsed Secretary Clinton; however, the Alabama Democratic Party does not endorse in a Primary Election.

Individuals with concerns about this false story should call Channel 12, a Raycom Affiliate in Montgomery, which originally aired the story at (334) 288-1212.
