Referring to a visit to Alabama by Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean, Alabama Republican Party Chair Mike Hubbard had said:
"Every time Howard Dean opens his mouth in Alabama, it makes our state Republican Party stronger and recruits more members to our conservative cause....I encourage him to visit our state often and share his left-wing agenda with the citizens of Alabama."In response, Mr. Turnham said that Mr. Hubbard didn't have any room to criticize, given what Mr. Turnham believes are the positions of some GOP presidential candidates:
"He has gun control in New York with Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney with gay marriage in Massachusetts....He shouldn't be taking shots at Howard Dean."Billy Jack Gaither in 1999 to remind him of the consequences of homophobia.
