Jeff Coleman’s wife, Tiffany, stars in latest AL-02 TV ad
In the latest television ad released Monday by Wiregrass businessman Jeff Coleman’s campaign to succeed retiring U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (AL-02), Coleman’s wife of 30 years, Tiffany, takes center stage.
This is the Republican candidate’s fifth television ad of the cycle.
Tiffany in the latest ad discusses how the Coleman family came to the decision to run for Congress, “After … a lot of talk with our family and prayer, it just seems like that’s where God’s calling us.”
The ad comes as Coleman faces an onslaught of attacks from fellow GOP candidates related to a 2012 lawsuit that was settled by his company. A recent internal poll showed Coleman building a large lead in the primary.
As introduced in his campaign launch video, Coleman is the head of his longtime family business, Coleman World Group, and its flagship Coleman Worldwide Moving.
Headquartered in Midland City, what is now Coleman World Group has grown from an eight-horse operation in 1914 to employing approximately 2,500 employees across offices in 18 states and one U.S. territory. The family business is now one of the largest private companies based in Alabama.
Speaking to the coarse nature of modern campaigns, Tiffany in the new ad remarks, “It’s exciting … but it’s also terrifying. But I’m for it!”
