Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright won the Democratic primary in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District. His convincing victory is proof that the working families of Alabama want a voice in Congress from this district who can make a real difference in their lives. Cheryl Sabel, who opposed Bobby in the primary, ran a good, clean race. While Cheryl had very little financial support, she made a very good impression in her first political race and may have a future in Alabama politics. The third place finisher in the race, Dr. Cendie Crawley of Troy, also made a very good impression in her campaign throughout the district. She too was in her first political race. In accepting his party’s nomination, Bobby had this to say about his primary win:
I am thankful to the voters of Alabama’s Second District who supported me tonight and want to thank God, my family and my supporters for this opportunity. Alabama’s working families are struggling with the rising cost of gas, groceries and health care and are ready for a leader who puts aside political fights and works for solutions. I look forward to sharing my ideas with the people of Alabama in the next five months, and showing them why I will represent our values in Congress.
Bobby will face either State Representative Jay Love or State Senator Harri Anne Smith in November. These two GOP candidates, who will meet in a run-off on the 15th of this month, emerged as the leaders over a pretty strong field of candidates. One of the candidates who didn’t make the run-off was my good friend, David Woods, who ran an excellent race and made an extremely good impression on folks. It will be interesting to see if the winner of the run-off will invite President Bush or Vice President Cheney down to campaign in the general election. In any event, it should be an exciting fall.
