Senator Tommy Tuberville will introduce former President Donald J. Trump at the Alabama Republican Party Summer Dinner in Montgomery at 7 p.m. on Friday night.

Tuberville, a former Auburn University head football coach, said he’s looking forward to the opportunity.

“I’m excited for President Trump to return to the most conservative state in the nation. Alabama is Trump Country and we’re going to do our part to help Make America Great Again,” Tuberville said.

Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl called the introduction and Trump’s speech is a big deal in the ALGOP.

“President Trump and Senator Tuberville are two of the most popular political figures in the State of Alabama,” Wahl said. “I am looking forward to hearing from these two conservative leaders when they make their remarks.”

Wahl said it will be great for the ALGOP to unite. Gov. Kay Ivey plans to attend.

“We are pleased to have the support of our elected officials as we head into the 2024 cycle,” Wahl said. “I want to see the Alabama Republican Party united against the out of control policies coming out of the leftist Democrat Party and the Biden Administration. We are going to support the American dream by pushing for fiscal responsibility, keeping our communities safe, bringing down runaway inflation, and protecting our children from woke policies. This is not going to be an easy election year, and it’s all hands on deck.”
