Follow the Money with Curtis and Greer

Follow the Money is a national website enumeratinng campaign contributions across the country. Before voting, everyone should look at these contributions carefully; are they a true reflection of the candidate? Many times they are. As mentioned earlier, Doc's Political Parlor calls the Alabama District 2 House race a toss-up at this point. Perhaps Follow the Money will sway some otherwise undecided voters.

Here's the report for the Democratic incumbent Mike Curtis: Contributions

Here's the report for the Republican challenger Lynn Greer: Contributions

Who had out of state contributions? That would be Curtis. Who had tobacco lobby contributions? That would also be Curtis? Who had beer and wine lobby contributions? That would again be Curtis. Beginning to see a picture here?

We are pleased to endorse Republican Lynn Greer for House District 2. You may visit Lynn's website here: Link


Republican congressional nominee Mo Brooks has received the endorsement of the Alabama State Fraternal Order of Police. In a letter to Brooks informing him of the endorsement, FOP President Bill Davis said the "endorsement was made after careful consideration and qualifications and experience of all of the candidates." Davis told Brooks, "the membership felt that you are the best person to serve in the office." The Alabama FOP has approximately 8,600 members.

Upon learning of the endorsement, Brooks said, "I am deeply honored to have the endorsement of such a well-respected organization of law enforcement professionals. Public safety is one the core functions of our government, and I stand second to no one in my strong support of the brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our families and our homes. I look forward to working closely with the FOP in the years ahead to provide them the support they need to accomplish their mission as effectively as possible."

Brooks, a Madison County Commissioner and former Alabama State Legislator, is the Republican nominee for Congress in Alabama's 5th Congressional District. The election is November 2nd.


We wholeheartedly agree with the Alabama Fraternal Order of Police and endorse Mo Brooks for Alabama's 5th Congressional seat.
