In a significant development, the fiscally conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition has endorsed Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright in his bid to be the next congressman for the 2nd Congressional District. Bobby has said he wants to be the next member of the coalition in the U.S. House of Representatives. Coalition members applauded Bobby for his commitment to fiscal responsibility and economic growth. U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer of Huntsville, who is not running for another term, believes that Bobby would be a good addition to the coalition which was formed in 1995.
Bobby won the June election to become the Democratic nominee and will face Rep. Jay Love in the general election. Jay was the winner of a bitter run-off battle with state Senator Harri Ann Smith. Many believe the negative tone of the Republican race will help Bobby replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Terry Everett in Congress. Time will tell if that assessment is correct. Early polling indicates that Bobby is extremely strong in the northern counties in the district and is also strong in the Wiregrass. This will be a real interesting race to watch.
