Alabama Democratic Party Response to November 8 Election

Although more Democrats than Republicans voted nationwide for the Democratic Party’s stellar nominees for President and Vice President, the outcome was an Electoral College victory for the Republican nominees. We congratulate the winners and offer our support as they attempt to unify our divided country.

The Party also congratulates all our state and local candidates who were on the ballot. Regardless of the outcome, each candidate demonstrated undaunted courage and a strong commitment to service by qualifying to run for office and campaigning throughout the election season. We appreciate all of our Democratic volunteers who were an integral part of each campaign.

Most of us agree that our country and our state are divided, but we must all unify as a state and nation to guarantee that our children receive a world-class education in well-funded public schools.  We must support our working men and women with job training and employment opportunities, higher pay, and affordable health care.  We must protect our senior citizens‘ retirement and Social Security, as we expand their options for long-term independent living.

The Alabama Democratic Party will never stop fighting for the interests of the people of our great state.
