111cc彩票下载安卓Supporters of two GOP hopefuls vying for Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District seat would surely think their chosen candidates did an outstanding job in a televised political forum hosted by WTVY on Tuesday. Each underscored his conservatism, his business acumen and his unwavering support of the Republican incumbent president, Donald Trump, along with nods to the importance of the military and agriculture to the economy of our district.

111cc彩票下载安卓However, there was a great deal missing: Neither candidate spoke to plans to improve the Wiregrass area by bringing jobs, fostering industrial growth, energizing the creation of infrastructure or addressing social ills that confound our nation. For the most part, the debate included many of the same sound bites from the candidates’ ad campaigns — there was little substance about the future of the 2nd District woven into the political rhetoric.

111cc彩票下载安卓That should leave voters, especially those who were hoping for something to separate the two candidates, significantly disappointed.

111cc彩票下载安卓The Republican who prevails in next week’s runoff will face Democrat Phyllis Harvey-Hall in November, and will likely win the seat, given the strength of the GOP in Alabama. They’ll follow Rep. Martha Roby, who carved out a legacy by taking on the intractable bureaucracy of the Department of Veterans Affairs in an attempt to ease the frustration of veterans seeking promised heath care.

Each man drove home the point that they’ve staked out a spot in the president’s amen corner, apparently hoping that will carry them to victory. However, any candidate is expected to pledge support of others in their same party. The organizations demand it.

111cc彩票下载安卓Voters deserved more.
