“The Alabama Republican Party is thrilled that President Trump is coming to Alabama and holding a rally in conjunction with our annual Summer Meeting,” state GOP Chairman John Wahl said in a press release, reports al.com. “We all know that there is a special relationship between President Trump and the people of Alabama, and I am incredibly excited to be part of bringing him back to our state. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the Trump Team since the end of February to make this visit possible. August 21 is going to be an exciting and memorable night for the state of Alabama.”
State Auditor Jim Zeigler, who is reportedly considering a run for governor, issued a statement before the rally was officially announced, saying that the former president “has a special relationship with Alabama,” Zeigler said. “This is where the Trump rallies started.”
Cullman Mayor Woody Jacobs told The Cullman Times that the rally will be a “rare, historical event for Cullman. The city is excited about this opportunity, and we will do our best to assist in any way we can. We want to make this an unforgettable event that is safe and family-friendly.
Cullman County Economic Development Director Bradley Williams added that the rally and visit will “have a major economic impact on Cullman, no doubt about that. I have gone to these events and seen the thousands of people who attend them which means they stay in your hotels, eat in our restaurants, visit our local businesses, and much more, helping our local economy.”
