Born into a blue-collar family, Doug has dedicated his life to serving his fellow citizens throughout his home state of Alabama. From his high school days as a leader of student government during the desegregation of Alabama’s public schools to his experience as a prosecutor, Doug has always worked to build unity within his community. As a U.S. Attorney, Doug brought members of the the KKK responsible for the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, which claimed the lives of four girls, to justice.
Doug is a tough prosecutor who is not afraid to do what’s right and will take that same commitment to Congress to cut through the dark fog of moneyed special interests that surrounds our politics. Doug will fight to ensure an equal playing field for all Americans by curbing the corrosive, corrupting influence of Big Money in Washington.
