Wednesday, the Rich Hobson for Congress Campaign announced the endorsement of the South Alabama Chapter of Boots on the Ground Bikers for Trump.
The grassroots organization originally formed to support the election of President Donald Trump in 2016. Hobson is running to represent the 2nd Congressional District.
“Rich Hobson’s honest, pragmatic, and hopeful insight into our community’s problems and needs sets him apart from the other candidates,” John “Blue Eagle” Maddalena, Chapter president, said. “Rich is always willing to examine the issues, listen closely to the public’s concerns, and yet stay true to the Constitution. I’m proud to support him, and I urge all District 2 voters to do the same.”
“I’m honored to have the support of Boots on the Ground Bikers for Trump,” Hobson said. “I appreciate their faith in me, and I look forward to working with them in the fight to return to the principles of limited government and personal responsibility our great nation was founded on.”
On Monday, Hobson won the U.S. House District 2 straw poll conducted at the 2018 River Region Candidate fair last night. The event, sponsored by the Wetumpka Tea Party, allowed citizens the opportunity to personally visit with 49 candidates in various races.
Hobson narrowly beat former Congressman Bobby Bright in the Republican primary poll. State Rep. Barry Moore finished third. Incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby finished fourth followed by Tommy Amason.
“Our pro-life, pro-veteran, and pro-Second Amendment message is resonating with the citizens of the Second District, and I thank God for the momentum,” said Hobson. “I appreciate the good folks of Elmore County who came out in force last night and asked tough, thought-provoking questions. I look forward to providing President Trump with the backbone and leadership he needs in Congress for his Make America Great Again agenda.”
Hobson was twice the top administrative officer of the Alabama Court system. He recently served as campaign manager for the Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign. He has also worked for the Foundation for Moral Law.
Hobson says that he is running with a committed focus on three key policy areas: rebuilding our military, putting America on a path to permanent prosperity, and reminding Americans that our Judeo-Christian values are what made our nation great.
The Republican primary election will be held on June 5.
