In just 50 days Alabama holds its primary for the U.S. Senate and rather than re-elect Sen. Richard Shelby, who is 81-years-old and served five terms in the Senate, the President of Citizens United Political Victory Fund David Bossie, has endorsed Iraq war veteran Jonathan McConnell.
"Captain McConnell is a true conservative change agent who will be a breath of fresh air in a United States Senate that is overflowing with stale ideas and outdated big-spending politicians," Bossie said, according to Breitbart.com.
Bossie added, "Over the 37 years Richard Shelby has been in Washington, he has presided over the out of control federal spending habits that has resulted in our suffocating and growing $19 trillion national debt."
Career Washington politician Richard Shelby's long voting record includes Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as secretary of state, as well as liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Bossie says, however, that it is important that the next senator of Alabama joins Sen. Ted Cruz and others in "challenging the failed status quo in Washington."
With the primary for president on the same day, Bossie also noted that "Anti-establishment, anti-Washington candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are set to dominate in that primary election at the presidential level."
"If you are an Alabama resident planning to vote for any of these three anti-establishment candidates for president, it is imperative that you also vote for fellow change agent Jonathan McConnell for United States Senate," Bossie continued.
While Richard Shelby has previously shown no interest in stopping "the Washington spend-o-rama," Bossie says that McConnell comes from a different era of politics and has a better understanding of the urgency of the situation.
"It’s time for Richard Shelby to go … Our country needs fresh ideas and new conservative leadership to solve the serious problems America faces today.
"Send Washington a message and support Jonathan McConnell for U.S. Senate in the Alabama primary on March 1," Bossie continued, according to Breitbart.com.
