The once-retired driving force (literally) behind the Republican Party is back on the road.

Montgomery’s own Johnny Williams, owner and operator of Johnny Williams Bus Charters, came out of retirement this year has found himself back on the road driving a bus for Concerned Women of America (CWA) in an eight-state tour to promote the confirmation of President Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

CWA, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, kicked off the #WomenforKavanaugh Bus Tour on August 8 in Des Moines, Iowa. The tour endeavors to rally conservative women to use their voices to support Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court of the United States.

“This is the moment conservative women and evangelical voters have been waiting for and a huge reason why they voted for President Trump,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA. “This grassroots bus tour will utilize CWA state directors, chapter leaders, and volunteers across the nation to rally behind Judge Kavanaugh and demonstrate that he is abundantly qualified to serve on the United States Supreme Court.”

Williams, who has made his living doing bus tours for candidates and issues campaigns has driven candidates for almost every level of government. He said the CWA is a old client of his and when they called for help wit the bus tour he said yes.

“We got back in there to help, because we’ve get Kavanaugh in there,” Williams said referring to getting Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Williams recognizes just how important the tour is in his home state of Alabama where newly elected U.S. Senator, Democrat Doug Jones is still on the fence about confirming Kavanaugh.

“We need to keep the pressure on Doug Jones,” Williams told Alabama Today.

Which is precisely why the CWA Bus Tour will make a stop in a suburb of Birmingham, Ala. in hopes of encouraging Alabamians to put the pressure on Jones to support Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The tour will conclude at on Thursday, August 23 from 12-1 p.m. at at Hoover Tactical.
