MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - As candidates move closer to the primaries, they're picking up coveted endorsements. Wednesday, Lt. Governor Jim Folsom (D) gained the backing of the Alabama Association of REALTORS®.
"Lt. Gov. Folsom has the experience that we need to preside over the Senate in the difficult times that are ahead. He will provide the stability that we need at this time," said Keith Kelley, President of the association.
"Lt. Gov. Folsom has served well as President of the Senate and has presided over some contentious sessions. I agree with our leadership that Lt. Governor Folsom should continue in his leadership in the senate," added J Danny Cooper, Executive Vice President of AAR.
The Alabama Association of REALTORS® is the trade association for real estate professionals in Alabama, who work in the residential, commercial, property management, resort and appraisal markets.
Folsom is being challenged in the race by Republicans Gene Ponder and Sen. Hank Erwin.
