REPUBLICAN JERRY FIELDING RESPONDS TO ATTACKS, SETS RECORD STRAIGHT WITH NEW WEBSITE

Republican Senate leadership stands behind Fielding

 SYLACAUGA- State Senator Jerry Fielding (R- Sylacauga) responded Monday to a series of attacks launched by his opponent, Jim McClendon. Fielding, who is sponsoring Senate Bill 220 to render Obamacare null and void in Alabama, was accused by McClendon of supporting universal healthcare. In response, Fielding’s campaign is launching the website “TheRealJimMcClendon.com” to set the record straight.

“Jim McClendon joined Democrats in voting himself a 62% pay raise and has openly supported raising taxes and expanding the power of government for years, so it’s no surprise that he doesn’t know a conservative record when he sees one,” Fielding said. “I must confront Jim’s lies for what they are.”

Senate Republican leaders have been quick to defend Fielding’s record.

“Senator Fielding strongly opposes Obamacare and is working hard to protect Alabamians from its harmful effects,” Senate Majority Leader Jabo Waggoner (R- Vestavia) said. “Jim McClendon isn’t being truthful about that.”

Republican Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh (R-Anniston) also shot back at McClendon.

“If Jim McClendon is so concerned about Obamacare, he would be a cosponsor of Senator Fielding’s anti-Obamacare bill,” Marsh said.

TheRealJimMcClendon.com launches Monday.

REPUBLICAN STATE SENATOR JERRY FIELDING QUALIFIES TO RUN FOR REELECTION

SYLACAUGA—State Senator Jerry Fielding filed paperwork yesterday at the Alabama Republican Party Headquarters to run for reelection in the state’s eleventh Senate District. Fielding, who was first elected to the State Senate in 2010, says he is proud of progress that the legislature has made but believes there is more work ahead.

“I look forward to the opportunity to once again roll up my sleeves and go to work in Montgomery,” Fielding said. “Almost daily, voters ask me what can be done to help relieve the burden Washington has put on their shoulders. As their State Senator, I believe I have every obligation to fight for new jobs, lower taxes, the nullification of Obamacare, and other commonsense conservative policies that will continue to improve the quality of life in Central Alabama.”

Fielding served as a District and Circuit Judge for twenty-six years prior to his election to the State Senate. He resides in Sylacauga with his wife Libby.
