A major win for democracy in Alabama!

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, The Supreme Court just rejected the Alabama GOP’s congressional map. They affirmed what we’ve known all along. The extremists in my home state are hell-bent on suppressing the voting power of Black Alabamians. The decision today marked the final defeat…

Tuberville isn’t giving up

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, The Senate is finally taking action against Tuberville’s assault on our military. After months of delay, Gen. Charles Q. Brown has been confirmed as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. This is a win for the readiness of our troops and the strength of our…

Tommy Tuberville's un-American assault on the military

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, The Senate may be in recess now, but Tommy Tuberville packed up and went home fully intent on continuing his un-American assault on the military. For 147 days now, Tuberville has held up the promotions of generals and flag officers in all branches of ou…

Tuberville's war on women

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, By now, you know about Tommy Tuberville’s one-person hold on Senate confirmation of all generals and flag officers in our military. It’s shocking that we don’t have a confirmed Marine Commandant for more than a century. But the damage to our military go…

Another major victory for voting rights

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, A couple of weeks ago, I told you that the decision in the Supreme Court’s Alabama redistricting case was a seismic shift that would reverberate throughout the South. Now, I’m so pleased to say that we’re seeing the consequences of that decision.   B…

A Seismic Decision From SCOTUS: 4 new toss-up races in the South

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, Today, the Supreme Court handed down a decision that could be seismic in Alabama and across the South. In a 5-4 decision, they struck down the Alabama Republican Party’s illegal and outright discriminatory attempt to gerrymander Black voters into one Co…

Since 1978

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, In 1978, while busting it as a second year law student, I met a young, first-term Senator from Delaware. To say that he made a lasting impression is an understatement. I had a feeling then what I know to be true now – that Joe Biden would one day not o…

The outrageous assault on democracy in Tennessee

Rally for Medicaid expansion in Alabama

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, There’s a whole host of nonsensical and downright cruel policy positions the Alabama GOP has adopted over the years. But the one I struggle to wrap my head around the most is why they refuse to expand Medicaid in the state. Y’all know I’ve been a big su…

good grief

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, We have to fight back against the culture wars that are about to be inflicted on us. If you think I am overreacting, consider this: high schoolers in Tuscaloosa, Alabama wanted to hold a Black History Month event but were told by school administrators t…

We’re joining the fight in Georgia

Operation 147 PAC     Folks, A few weeks ago, we showed the country exactly what a motivated Democratic grassroots base can do. We fought, and we defied historical precedent by holding control in the Senate. But our work isn’t done. The Georgia run-off is 14 days away, and our tea…
