Title:Democratic Party in Alabama
Date:2008 June 5

Encyclopedia article about the Alabama Democratic Party which has existed for almost as long as Alabama has been a state. It was the strongest party within Alabama for most of the state's history. During the roughly fifty-year existence of the "solid, one-party, South," the Democratic Party was the political party of Alabama. In recent decades, a more competitive, two-party, politics has emerged within the state, lessening Democratic Party dominance in Alabama politics. Still, roughly thirty to forty percent of Alabamians currently identify themselves as Democrats and hundreds of party members hold elected office at all levels of government throughout the state.
