Former Christian Coalition President Enters Senate Race Against Career Politicians

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Montgomery businessman and physician, Randy Brinson, candidate for the U.S. Senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, spoke yesterday at Alabama Republican Party Headquarters.  Brinson outlined his plans to fight corruption, repeal and replace Obamacare, protect the Constitution, end Common Core, grow the economy, create jobs, and promote common-sense Alabama values in Washington, D.C.

Brinson touched on Alabama's multiple recent political scandals, saying, "The people of Alabama deserve better" than "a shady appointment which put a permanent Alabama politician into a vacant Senate seat, or a current Congressman who keeps making incendiary comments. Both of these characters are career long politicians who currently swim in the swamp."

A practicing physician, Brinson called Obamacare "a huge overreach of federal power that puts government bureaucracy between you and your doctor," and supports repeal and replacement of the ACA.

Brinson has a history of involvement in Christian values-based political action, including founding Redeem The Vote in 2003.  He emphasized his support for the 1st Amendment, saying "When government can restrict our faith, there is nothing that they cannot restrict."

An avid hunter, Brinson said, "I understand the need to protect our right to keep and bear arms," and vowed to fight any attempt to erode that right.

Brinson vowed to end Common Core "because it's an attempt to instill politically correct ideology, contrary to our values and beliefs."  He proposed a shift in emphasis to trade internships and business partnerships in education to help more students prepare for jobs in the real world.

An Air Force veteran, Brinson supports a strong national defense strategy, as well as support for law enforcement, firefighters and first responders.  "We must see to it that they have the equipment, the training and the resources to continue to protect us."

Brinson touted his experience creating Alabama jobs, saying, "We need more good jobs in this country, and trade is one of the best ways to create those good jobs.  Fair trade benefits all of us, but it should be Fair, both ways, so I'll fight against any trade deals that are unfair."

Brinson closed by saying, "It takes character, core convictions, and competency to make a difference for the people of Alabama."
