DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — U.S. Congressional candidate Jeff Coleman is still hitting the campaign trail hard as 20 days separates him from the July run-off election.
According to Coleman, the next few weeks will be spent meeting with business owners and deciding how to best open the local economy.
Coleman and his competitor Barry Moore have continued going to different events, but lately, Coleman has not been present at some of his planned meetings.
WDHN asked him about those cancellations, and whether Coleman would be willing to debate against Moore.
“A lot of our events are already booked,” he said. “We’ll go to any and all events that are available where we can fit it in our calendar. We’re open on any and all ability to debate. We want to go out and talk about what’s important to our citizens in trying to help them move forward. We’re available to debate at any time.”
Coleman also received news that Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba has officially endorsed him. In a statement, the mayor said:
“Jeff Coleman is the clear choice to represent District 2 and Alabama in Congress. He’s a businessman not a politician. I know that he will serve the people once elected and make sure that our voices are heard. Jeff as a community leader, successful businessman, father, and husband is a proven and prudent leader who will get results. He has my full endorsement and support.”Mayor Mark Saliba
