Republican Katie Britt endorsed by Associated Builders and Contractors’ political arm

Republican Katie Britt yesterday announced that her campaign for the U.S. Senate has been endorsed by ABC Merit PAC.


Republican Katie Britt yesterday announced that her campaign for the U.S. Senate has been endorsed by ABC Merit PAC, the Associated Builders and Contractors of  Alabama’s political action committee. 

Formed in 1950, Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) is the national voice of the merit  shop in the construction industry. 

The merit shop philosophy is a belief that the free enterprise system, uninhibited by government over regulation or interference, provides the best opportunity for qualified, hardworking individuals to excel  in their craft. It is a competitive way of doing business that encourages fair play, economic growth,  and job creation. It is a principle which, while focusing on safety and workforce development, rewards  personal initiative, skill, and drive to succeed. At the end of the day, the merit shop way of thinking  creates opportunity rather than fostering entitlement – something the country could learn from. 

“We are excited to support Katie Britt’s campaign to serve as the next U.S. Senator for Alabama,”  said Deepa Bhate, chairman of ABC of Alabama and CEO and founder of Birmingham-based  Building & Earth Sciences, Inc. “Katie will protect our country’s free enterprise system and champion  growing enhanced opportunity and good-paying jobs for all hardworking Alabamians, regardless of  their zip code. From education and skills training to mental health and the opioid epidemic, Katie is  focused on finding solutions for the challenges facing Alabama industry, job creators and families. We  are confident she will make Alabama proud, and we look forward to working with her to build our  state’s strong future.”
