TUSCUMBIA – U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville spent several days touring the Shoals this weekend, visiting Coldwater Bookstore, Deshler High School, Ivy Green, the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Rattlesnake Saloon in Tuscumbia, Wishbone Studio in Muscle Shoals, The Red Clay Table in Sheffield, and UNA in Florence.

“I love the Shoals,” Tuberville said. “It’s a beautiful area with great natural resources, including really creative people. I’m so impressed with the innovation in business and the artistic talent. This is a special place.”

On Saturday Tuberville was the guest speaker for the Shoals Republican Club and a Faith and Family event hosted by Cornerstone Church of Christ in Florence. He later hosted a Town Hall at the Shoals Chamber of Commerce.

“I could easily just stay home and fish every day and enjoy retirement,” he said, “But I want to serve. I’m worried about the direction of our nation and I want to step up and do my part to help. I’m really a politician’s worst nightmare because I don’t need the job or the money – I just want to do what’s right.”

Tuberville is touring the state, stumping for the Senate seat currently held by Doug Jones. He is campaigning on a platform centered on low taxes, faith, and economic growth.

“I believe what our county needs can be found in faith, family and education,” he said. “We need to get back to God, strengthen our families, and support education.”

Tuberville enjoyed eating at several locally-owned restaurants while he was in town, including The Red Clay Table and Vertillo’s Pizza in Sheffield.

“I love seeing the revitalization in the local downtown areas,” he said. “There are great things happening in the Shoals. I loved visiting these locally-owned small businesses.”

Before returning to his home in Auburn, Tuberville attended First Presbyterian Church in Tuscumbia.

“I was excited to attend church where Helen Keller attended so many years ago,” he said. “She was such a courageous advocate for people with disabilities all over the world. Her impact is still felt today. It was great to visit her home, her church, her town. That courageous spirit she had is still here. You can feel it.”

Tuberville said he plans to return to the Shoals area soon.

I believe in the Shoals,” he said, and I will be your voice in Washington.”
