Cory Booker, John Lewis, and Deval Patrick Head to Alabama
For Democratic Alabama Senate candidateDoug Jones to defeat his Republican opponent, the accused child molester Roy Moore, he will have to motivate Barack Obama-level numbers of African Americans at the polls. Enter Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), all of whom Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) is bringing to her home state to help Jones take the lead in the tight contest. The Congresswoman has been leading the effort to organize a slate of Sunday campaign events, including a rally in Birmingham. WaPo reports that Sewell is also trying to cement plans for Congressional Black Caucus Chair Congressman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) and Congressman Sanford Bishop Jr. (D-GA) to campaign for Jones on Sunday as well.
