Alabama RetailPAC announces endorsements

Alabama RetailPAC, the Alabama Retail Association’s state political action committee, has made its 2022 endorsements for the May 24 primaries.


Alabama RetailPAC, the Alabama Retail Association’s state political action committee, has made its 2022 endorsements for the May 24 primaries.

Alabama Retail Association PAC, Alabama Retail’s federal political action committee, also has made endorsements for the U.S. Senate and in one U.S. House of Representative race.

“The Alabama Retail Association believes these candidates understand the issues retailers face and that, if elected, these individuals will give retailers’ interests a fair hearing,” said Alabama Retail Chairman Jodie Stanfield. 

The Retail Association closely evaluates each candidate’s record and discusses the ramifications of each race before granting its endorsement. 

“We are confident these candidates are the best choices for these positions,” said Alabama Retail President Rick Brown.

Endorsements for both PACs relate to candidates who face opposition in the May 24 primaries.

More endorsements could be forthcoming as the campaign cycle progresses.
