The Business Council of Alabama endorsed Jeff Coleman in the GOP primary for the 2nd Congressional District this week.
Coleman, CEO of Coleman Worldwide Moving and former chairman of the council, was one of six candidates to earn the group’s endorsement.
“Having the support of our business community is a tremendous honor, and I am very thankful,” Coleman said. “Business leaders in our district are confident that I will go to Washington to be a voice for pro-business policies and will support President Trump’s agenda of freedom and prosperity.”
The council also endorsed Chris Pringle, Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, Gary Palmer and Terri Sewell, in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th districts, respectively.
Rogers, Aderholt, Palmer and Sewell are incumbent. The 1st and 2nd districts are open races.
“These candidates come from diverse areas of our state, but all of them share a true commitment to supporting common sense, pro-jobs policies,” said John Mazyck of The Frazer Lanier Company Inc. in Montgomery and chairman of the council’s board. “Whether through service in the private sector, the state Legislature or Congress, these candidates have all clearly demonstrated their dedication to building a better Alabama. We are proud to support their candidacies and look forward to our local networks of job creators rallying around them in each respective district.”
In January, Coleman earned the endorsement of the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, of which he is the former chairman.
Wiregrass business leaders also have contributed heavily to Coleman’s campaign, as shown in year-end Federal Election Commission filings recently made publicly available.
