Should In-N-Out leave California over Dem boycott? Alabama lawmaker has interesting proposal

In-N-Out Burger has been a west coast staple since 1948. Their locations don't extend farther east than Dallas, but one lawmaker is trying to change that.

What are the details?

Amid a boycott initiated by California Democrats, Alabama state Sen. Phil Williams (R) has invited the Christian-based fast-food chain to move its headquarters more than 2,000 miles east to the Heart of Dixie, according to AL.com.

He posted his invitation on Twitter last Thursday.

Additional details weren't immediately clear.

The invitation follows a call from California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman to boycott In-N-Out after it was revealed last week the restaurant donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.

"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!" Bauman wrote on social media.

Bauman called for the boycott despite the fact that In-N-Out donates to both Republicans and Democrats. In fact, the burger shop has donated $50,000 to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy this year, a PAC aligned with Democrats, Los Angeles Magazine reported.

Still, Bauman's call for a boycott didn't go as planned. Californians are fiercely loyal to In-N-Out, which they claim serves up the best fast-food burger. Not only did Democrats not buy into the boycott, but the protest sent droves of Republicans to their nearest In-N-Out location.
