MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Secretary of State Beth Chapman is taking a political consulting job with the Alabama Farmers Federation when she resigns her public office at the end of the month.
Federation officials say Chapman will start her new job Aug. 1 and work through the 2014 election.
The federation's director of government relations, Brian Hardin, says the organization has a long-standing relationship with Chapman, including endorsing her for state auditor and then two races for secretary of state.
He says the organization needed someone with political experience about the same time Chapman started looking for an opportunity beyond elected office.
The Alabama Farmers Federation is the sister organization of Alfa insurance, and its political action committee is a major contributor to Alabama political campaigns.
