Candidates Face-off in Forum before Election Day

Candidates Face-off in Forum before Election Day

Posted: Updated:

The two Republican candidates in the AL-01 congressional race are entering the home stretch, with election day just a week away.

Bradley Byrne and Dean Young faced off again in another Congressional form, this one was at Daphne United Methodist Church. Democratic candidate Burton LeFlore also attended.

The race between the Republicans has gotten heated in the past month, with Byrne and Young attacking each other on social media, television and in person.

Tuesday night’s forum was considerably tame, but the candidates said they are trying to cast themselves a part to let voters know there is a stark difference for voters.

“It’s the classic battle between the Republican establishment who have given him $600,000 dollars against the Tea Party people the people that want our country back the way it used to be,” said Young.

“This is a race between somebody that has a proven track record and problem solving and someone who does’t,” said Byrne. “I am just trying to talk about who I a and what I can do for the people of this district and the country.”

The winner will go on to face Leflore in the General Election.

“I am certainly not going to voice any opinions at this point I think that they are both fine individuals I may not agree with their idea and I wish them both luck,” said LeFlore.
