A California-based fast food company is being offered the opportunity to set up shop in Alabama after some California Democrats called for a boycott over the company's donations to state Republicans.
'Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party ... it's time to #BoycottInNOut - let Trump and his cronies support these creeps... perhaps animal style!' California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman
late Wednesday night.
Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party... it’s time to #BoycottInNOut - let Trump and his cronies support these creeps... perhaps animal style!https://t.co/9zkdFaG5CJ— EricBauman (@EricBauman) August 30, 2018
In the tweet, Bauman linked to a Los Angeles Magazine article that revealed that Irvine, California-based cult fave burger joint In-N-Out — famous for its 'animal style' hamburgers — appeared to have donated $25,000 to the California GOP on August 28.
In response, Alabama State Senator Phil Williams, of Rainbow City, Alabama, invited In-N-Out to move to his less hamburger hostile, red state.
'Hey #InNOutBurger c'mon to Alabama! We love burgers, and we love #Republicans! #alpolitics,' Williams
In-N-Out currently only has restaurants in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Utah.
Several California Republicans also scurried to show their love In-N-Out on Thursday.
California State Sen. Jim Nielsen, a Republican, posted on Facebook a gleeful picture of himself surrounded by his staff's large In-N-Out burger and fries lunch
