Citing her commitment to border security and combatting illegal immigration, all of the Republican sheriffs currently holding office in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District jointly announced on Wednesday their endorsement of Caroleene Dobson in the April 16 GOP runoff election for Congress.

The joint endorsement statement released by the county sheriffs read:

“Caroleene Dobson understands that securing our border is the only way to stop the fentanyl pipeline, end sex trafficking, and keep our communities safe from illegal immigrants who break our laws with their simple presence. 

“Growing up on the farm that has been in her family for generations, her roots run deep in the Second Congressional District, so she fully understands the unique needs of the rural areas of the district as well as the major cities that anchor each end of it.

“Her pledge to ‘take our country back’ from the woke crowd and illegal immigrants demonstrates that Caroleene Dobson is the strong, committed leader and bold voice that we need speaking for Alabama’s Second Congressional District in the chambers of the U.S. Capitol.”

The sheriffs voicing their support include Danny Bond of Butler County, who has 38 years experience in law enforcement; DeWayne C. Smith of Clarke County, a 30 year veteran of law enforcement; Terry Mears of Crenshaw County, a retired U.S. Navy chief petty officer serving his second term as sheriff; Paul Burch of Mobile County, who was elected in 2022 following 30 years in law enforcement, and Richard Stringer of Washington County, who has long-served the area.

Recently retired Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran previously announced his endorsement of Dobson, as well.

The daughter and granddaughter of farmers and small business owners, Dobson grew up working on her family’s cattle farm in Beatrice and has been endorsed by the Alabama Farmers’ Federation and the Alabama Forestry Association.

Dobson, her husband, Bobby, and their two daughters split time between her family farm in Monroe County and Montgomery, where she practices real estate law.
