LOCAL Alabama recently launched a video telling Alabama voters, in the wake of upcoming elections, "Don't just vote Republican. Vote conservative."

The video offers critique to the decisions made by state officials during the recent COVID-19 shutdowns. Those decisions include Gov. Kay Ivey blaming the unvaccinated for a spike in the number of COVID cases in July of 2021.

When asked, "What is it going to take to get people to get these shots?" Ivey responded, “I don’t know, you tell me. Folks [are] supposed to have common sense, but it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks, it’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”

1819 News reached out to the governor's office and campaign for comment but neither has provided a response to the media inquiry.

"In Alabama," the video goes on to say, "violent protesters had a right to assemble, but those seeking to worship together didn't. Big box and liquor stores remained open while small businesses were shut down and put out of business while school children were forced to mask their faces and minors were granted the right to vaccinate without parental consent."

The video concludes that "our leadership in Alabama has lost its way and we're on the wrong track. We can get things back on track, but don't just vote Republican—vote conservative."
