Republican 2nd Congressional District candidate Jeff Coleman said Wednesday that he has the endorsement of the Automobile Dealers Association of Alabama.
“It is a true honor to have the support from auto dealers across our great district,” Coleman said. “Alabama’s economic boom could not be possible without the effort and service of these job creators. I am encouraged by the outpouring of support by so many Alabama-based folks who are confident in my ability to stand with our President and bring our economy roaring back!”
Tom Dart is the President of the Automobile Dealers Association of Alabama.
“Jeff Coleman will be a strong pro-business leader that Congress needs,” Dart said. “Jeff is the person we can count on to go to Washington and come back as the same man he was when he left. His pro-business, pro-Alabama values are what makes him the right man for the job. Auto dealers across the district and Alabama as a whole will benefit from his leadership and understanding of how vital transportation is to our nation’s economy.”
Coleman is a native of Dothan. Until recently he was the president and CEO of Coleman Worldwide Moving, the fourth generation of his family to head the company. Coleman is a former chairman of the Business Council of Alabama.
Coleman has been endorsed by both BCA and the Alabama Farmers Federation.
Coleman is running in the Republican primary runoff against former State Rep. Barry Moore, R-Enterprise. The eventual Republican nominee will face Democratic candidate Phyllis Harvey-Hall in the Nov. 3 general election.
The 2nd Congressional District is open this year because incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, is retiring after just five terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
