McMillan: “For years, Jeff Sessions has shown that he is a man of unwavering courage and loyalty to Alabama and the United States of America.”
MOBILE, Ala. — Alabama State Treasurer John McMillan today announced his endorsement of Jeff Sessions in the race for U.S. Senate.
“Our nation is dealing with some of the most difficult times in our history, except perhaps the Civil War and the two World Wars. It is insulting that Coach Tuberville often compares this race to a game. This is such an important race. Our future is at stake. This is no game, Coach,” McMillan said.
“We need a Senator who knows this is not a game and understands the issues of today and has the courage to confront them. For years, Jeff Sessions has shown that he is a man of unwavering courage and loyalty to Alabama and the United States of America.”
An elder statesman in the Alabama Republican Party, McMillan has served two terms as a State Representative and two terms as the Alabama Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries (a statewide position). He served for over 20 years as the Executive Vice President of the the Alabama Forestry Association, one of the most powerful conservative association groups in the state.
“I have known Jeff Sessions since 1994, when he had the nerve to take on and win the Attorney General’s office in what appeared to be a long shot. He knew our State needed a choice and he stepped up,” McMillan remarked.
“I hope President Trump wins in November and that he has two Senators from Alabama who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to help him. Shelby and Sessions will be stalwarts for President Trump and for America,” he continued.
“Senator Sessions is knowledgeable about virtually every important challenge facing our nation and is not shy about sharing his intelligent and principled thoughts on national and global issues. His stances are also right in line with the vast majority of Alabamians on China, illegal immigration, the economy, law and order, judicial appointments, and civil unrest, to name a few,” McMillan said.
