Jeff Coleman’s campaign for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District said this week that Coleman has been endorsed by Florala Mayor Terry Holley.
“Jeff Coleman has my full support,” Holley said in a statement. “I believe that he will represent our families and values with principled leadership in Washington and help ensure that our district and state continue to thrive and grow.”
“Mayor Holley’s support is incredibly humbling and I am very thankful for his endorsement,” Coleman said. “His leadership and commitment to the wonderful citizens of Florala is something that we need more of in our country!”
Coleman, until his campaign for Congress, was the chairman and president of Coleman Worldwide Moving. The fourth generation of his family to head the company, Coleman is a businessman and a lifelong Dothan resident. Coleman is a former chairman of the Business Council of Alabama.
Coleman has been endorsed by the mayors of Luverne, Dothan, Millbrook, Geneva and now Florala in his bid to win the open 2nd Congressional District. He also has the endorsements of the BCA and the Alabama Farmers Federation.
Coleman is running in the July 14 Republican primary runoff against former State Rep. Barry Moore. The eventual winner of the Republican nomination will face Democratic nominee Phyliss Harvey-Hall in the Nov. 3 general election.
Five-term incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby is retiring from Congress at the end of her current term.
