Who's Got Obama's Back?

Alabama Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D, AL-07), that's who.  Don't you love this picture of Terri Sewell and friends -- what great shirts!

Terri Sewell has Obama's back

They're not just for show either.  Terri and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus were in Ohio over the weekend campaigning for President Obama.  She was back home yesterday, working for her own re-election (no worries, she's a shoo-in) and making sure to get out the vote for Democratic candidates across the state because she knows it's important to elect good people up and down the ticket.

Folks in her district are noticing what a great job Terri Sewell is doing as a member of Congress, too.  Last week the Montgomery Advertiser chided Republicans Martha Roby (AL-02) and Mike Rogers (AL-03) for voting in lockstep with the Republican leadership, saying they need to "follow Sewell's lead" in Congress.  Amen. 

In the 7th District, incumbent Terri Sewell is concluding her first term. She is one of the most impressive newcomers in Congress and 7th District voters should proudly re-elect this smart, compassionate congresswoman.

Alabama is fortunate to have such a shining example of how a "representative" should represent her constituents in Washington, especially since the rest of our delegation is such a disappointment.  Terri Sewell not only has Obama's back in this election, she has Alabama's back, all the time.

The Congresswoman will join the Jefferson County Democrats for an Election Night Watch Party tonight at The Parthenon (2210 First Avenue North) in Birmingham.  Doors open at 7 pm. Many Alabama Democratic candidates are expected to attend.  Supporters, volunteers and staff of all Democratic candidates are welcome, as are representatives of the media.

Alfa (4.00 / 1)
I was glad but surprised that she got the nod from Alfa.

She's a shoe-in for re-election and ALFA knows it (4.00 / 1)

Why antagonize a member of Congress for no reason.  And doesn't she sit on the Ag Committee? 

Work harder and work smarter!
