BIRMINGHAM - AL -

Alabama GOP Chairman Bill Armistead wants state Senator Vivian Davis Figures to apologize over comments she made, suggesting racism plays a role in the state Republican party.
Figures says she believes an anti-government, anti-Obama message from Republicans is racially motivated.
Armistead denies the claim.  He says Republicans vote based on politics and not race.  He added that Alabamians have only backed one Democrat for President in the last 37 years.
