Greg Albritton endorses Dick Brewbaker for Congress

On Friday, State Senator Greg Albritton (R-Atmore) endorsed former State Senator Dick Brewbaker (R-Montgomery) in Tuesday's Republican primary runoff election.

"Good morning, Greg Albritton here on the steps of Capital of Alabama," said Albritton. "I am her to introduce my good friend, if you don't know him, Dick Brewbaker running for Congressional District Two. I want to let him know I support him. I endorse him. I am going to do all I can to get his sorry self up there so we can have good representation in Washington. We need someone who knows what to do, how to do and when to do. Dick is the guy who can do it. Proud to do it, Buddy."

"I really appreciate Greg's endorsement," said Brewbaker. "We served together in the Alabama State Senate together and nobody fights in his corner for his constituents like Greg Albritton does."

"We served in the House too," Albritton added.

"Yea, a long time ago," Brewbaker said. "We go back a long way."

"Yea we do," Albritton said.

"His endorsement means a lot, because he understands what's at stake in district Two especially for South Alabama," Brewbaker said. "You carried Mobile County and the three southern counties in the district?"

"Yep," replied Albritton.

"To get the support of a man who knows what is best for Mobile, Washington, and Clarke Counties, it is a real honor for me and Greg, I really appreciate it," Brewbaker said. "Thank you."

The pair were joined in the video clip released to the media by Sen. Will Barfoot (R-Pike Road), who is also supporting Brewbaker.

Brewbaker owned a number of car dealerships in the Montgomery area until recently. He is a father and grandfather.

Brewbaker is running against political newcomer real estate attorney Caroleene Dobson.

Albritton was previously a candidate for the open congressional district himself. He finished outside of the top two in the Republican primary on April 2, thus missed the runoff.

The Democratic primary runoff is also on Tuesday, April 16. There former Assistant Attorney General Shomari Figures is running against House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels (D-Huntsville).

The eventual Republican and Democratic nominees will face off in the general election on November 5. Republicans presently hold a 6 to 1 advantage over Democrats in Alabama's congressional delegation in the House. Democrats believe that they have a rare opportunity to pick up a congressional in conservative Alabama due to recent redistricting by the federal court.
