Katie Britt endorses Caroleene Dobson

On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Katie Britt (R-Alabama) announced that she has endorsed the Republican nominee for U.S. Representative for Alabama's Second Congressional District Caroleene Dobson.

"I am excited to endorse my friend, Caroleene Dobson, to serve as the next Representative for Alabama's Second Congressional District," said Sen. Katie Britt. "She will always put Alabamians first and stand up strongly for common sense – which is a rarity nowadays in Washington. As a resident of the district, I know that Caroleene will tirelessly fight for secure borders, stable prices, and safe streets; defend women and families; and grow opportunity for every Alabamian, so no one's zip code prohibits them from living their American Dream. Victory in November starts today. It's time to send Caroleene to Congress."

Sen. Britt also announced that her leadership committee is financially contributing the maximum permissible amount to Dobson's campaign.

Dobson defeated former State Sen. Dick Brewbaker in Tuesday's Republican primary runoff.

Dobson will face Democratic nominee Shomari Figures in the November 5 General Election.

Britt said the general election will be extremely competitive, and is encouraging all Alabamians to rally around Dobson early and invest their time, talent, voice, energy, and resources to helping win this critical contest.

Recent polling shared by the Alabama Daily News showed Dobson with an early leading over Figures of three points.
