CULLMAN – ­Cullman resident Jason Sanders at Tuesday night’s meeting of the Cullman County Republican Women spoke about his candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Alabama Democrat Doug Jones. Sanders, a Republican, said he intends to challenge Jones in 2020. Of course, he'd have to win what is expected to be a tightly packed 2020 Republican primary first in order to make it to the Nov. 3, 2020 general election.

Sanders said his interest in politics began when he was in high school, his frustration with politicians increasing as he got older.

“I became so frustrated with politicians who took it lying down,” he shared.

Sanders said he supports smaller government and border security and is a big supporter of the military.

“I’m really cut and dry,” he said. “I have a lot of political views that are shared by many that are being completely ignored by our current representatives.”

Sanders’ slogan is that he’s “a believer in time tested politics.” He said, “Conservative doesn’t mean old and outdated; it means time tested and proven.”
