Singer/songwriter Lee Greenwood endorses Dick Brewbaker

Country music legend Lee Greenwood announced last week that he has endorsed former State Senator Dick Brewbaker (R-Montgomery) in the Republican primary runoff for Congressional district two Republican run-off election on Tuesday.

"Hello to all my friends in the great state of Alabama," said Greenwood. "This is Lee Greenwood. And I'm deeply honored to extend my wholehearted endorsement to a true American patriot: Dick Brewbaker for Congress. His proven track record of principled advocacy, effective leadership and dedicated public service guarantees that he will always stand firm in defense of our rights, our values and our future."

Greenwood's iconic "God Bless the USA" has become almost a third national anthem behind only "God Bless America" and "The Star-Spangled Banner"

Greenwood is also an outspoken supporter of former President Donald J. Trump (R)

Sen. Brewbaker thanked Greenwood for his support.

"I'm proud to have the endorsement from one of our most patriotic entertainers, Lee Greenwood," Brewbaker said in a statement. "I'm proud to be an American, and I am going to win this race for all the people who love and believe in our country."

Brewbaker is a longtime Montgomery area automobile dealer.

Brewbaker is running against real estate attorney Caroleen Dobson. Dobson has never held office before but she has the support of the Farmer's Federation and the Cattlemen's Association.

The Republican run-off between Brewbaker and Dobson is on Tuesday, April 16. The Democratic primary runoff in CD2 is also on Tuesday. There House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels (D-Huntsville) faces former Assistant Attorney General Shomari Figures.

Polls will open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m.

CD2 has been dramatically redrawn by the federal court so many people who were previously in District 1 or 3 are now in the redrawn CD2.

Voters may only vote at the polling place in which they are assigned. Alabama does not have party registration so voters may vote in the primary of their choice; however crossover voting is illegal in Alabama – meaning that if you voted in the Democratic primary in the primary on March 2 you cannot vote in Republican primary or vice versa. If you did not vote in either party primary, you are free to vote in the party runoff election of your choice, even if you normally support the other party. Be sure to bring a valid photo ID with you to the polls on election day. Proper ID is required to participate in any Alabama election.

CD2 is presently in Republican hands and the Alabama Republican Party is committed to holding on to the seat.
