MONTGOMERY – The Alabama Retail Association endorses Sen. Luther Strange for U.S. Senate in the Aug. 15 Republican primary.
“Luther Strange understands the issues retailers face and, if elected to the position he already holds, he will continue to give retailers’ interests a fair hearing,” said Alabama Retail President Rick Brown. The Alabama Retail Association board of directors closely evaluated each candidate’s record before granting its endorsement. “We are confident Luther Strange is the best choice for this job,” Brown said.
The Alabama Retail Association previously endorsed Strange in his 2006 run for lieutenant governor and his successful 2010 election as attorney general.
