According to NRCC Chairman Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) it is:
“Alabama will be one of the most important congressional battlegrounds in the country because you really do have opportunities here for each party to try and do something,” said U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.
“That’s a real Republican opportunity for us,” Cole said.
“We think the value structure of the district, which is traditionally conservative and strong for defense, is one that a Republican candidate ought to do very well in,” Cole said. “We feel very fortunate to have someone like Wayne in this race. We think he’s going to win this seat,” Cole said.
Alabama’s 5th district is weighted R+6, and George W. Bush took 60% of the vote in 2004. This is one of the GOP’s best opportunities to flip a district from blue to red, and it is good to see the NRCC is taking advatage of it by supporting Wayne Parker.
