October 2012 Group Watch: Senate Switch

State Senator Jerry Fielding of Sylacauga recently announced he is joining the Republican Party. Fielding said he is distressed with the national Democratic Party moving further to the left and added that his political philosophy and moral values are more in line with Republican Party. The 35-member Senate now has 23 Republicans, 11 Democrats and one independent. Fielding served as a district and circuit judge as a Democrat for more than 20 years before being elected a state Senator. Fielding is described by Republicans as conservative, pro-business and a “perfect fit” to join their ranks. Republican Governor Robert Bentley issued a statement welcoming Fielding to the Republican Party.
