ALGOP Statement on Senator Doug Jones’ No Vote to End the Government Shutdown 
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan made the following statement regarding Senator Doug Jones’ no vote to end the government shutdown: 
“It is extremely disappointing to see Senator Doug Jones vote no to end the government shutdown and secure our borders. This bill, proposed by Senator Shelby and endorsed by President Trump, allowed both Democrats and Republicans to find agreement in their ultimate goals.” 


“Alabamians want our nation safe through strong borders. In voting no for all of us, Senator Jones is bypassing the interests of the people he was elected to serve – especially when he says folks need to ‘compromise.’ Senator Jones is showing he has no intentions of practicing what he preaches with his no vote for our state.”


“We are grateful for Senator Shelby’s leadership in introducing this bill and earnestly working to end the government shutdown. Doug Jones’ days in the U.S. Senate are numbered. Alabamians are ready to vote in 2020 to see a Republican represent their values. On this, we will not compromise.”
