Claire Austin is the Alabama Chairman of Maggie's List.

"We are proud to endorse Caroleene Dobson for Congress in Alabama's 2nd Congressional District," said Chairman Austin. "Caroleene understands the value of hard work and the challenges currently facing hardworking American families. We trust that she will stand strong on our values of strong national security, fiscal responsibility and limited government in Congress."

"Maggie's List does critical work in helping to elect fiscally conservative women to federal office across the country, and I am honored to receive their endorsement for my campaign for Congress," said Dobson. "I will fight for our families, our farms, and our faith to ensure that the values of Alabama are represented and protected. It's time to stop the invasion at our southern border, fix the economy, and restore accountability in Washington."

Caroleene Dobson is a real estate attorney, wife, mother, District Two resident, and a lifelong advocate for conservative values seeking the Republican nomination for Alabama's Second Congressional District.
