Democrats and Huntsville
Huntsville is a creature of the Federal Government. Yes there are some significant companies like Adtran or Digium that do not rely on the Federal teat for money, but he bulk of the economy is related to the Army and NASA. One of the core programs being run out of the Arsenal is missile defense. Unfortunately President Obama talked in the campaign about how it needs to be reduced or cut. We have a Democratic Congressman newly elected to replace the old Democratic Congressman and he quickly is realizing that he needs to support the Army and the local economy. He was on the local news here saying how Obama is starting to support missile defense and the military. Nice to know. This is why many argue we need a Republican to support us.
