Statement on Donald Trump Becoming Republican Party’s Nominee for President
MONTGOMERY, Alabama (May 26, 2016) – “I congratulate Donald Trump on becoming the Republican Party’s nominee for President. Now that he has secured the required number of delegates, I hope all Republicans will join with me by pledging their support to rally around his campaign. We are at a critical time in our country and are in need of leadership to confront the special interests that continue to move our country in the wrong direction. Although, I am currently not planning to attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, I am extremely pleased that my friend Senator Jeff Sessions will serve as Chairman of Alabama’s delegation where he will play a key role in nominating Donald Trump. I am very proud that someone led the Alabama Convention Delegation in 2012 and 2016 from Wilcox County. I am hopeful the current political revolution will culminate in the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States,” said Lieutenant Governor Kay Ivey.
