Alabama GOP volunteers to battlegrounds states

Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's Republican Party chairman is traveling across the state to announce that the party will send volunteers to battleground states because Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is expected to carry Alabama by a wide margin.

Party Chairman Bill Armistead is calling the effort Alabama Battleground Patriots.

A party spokeswoman says Armistead plans stops Monday in Huntsville, Montgomery, Mobile and Dothan. He will be in Hoover on Tuesday.

The Republican nominee for president has carried Alabama in every election since 1980.
