Bright Raises over $540,000 for 2010 Campaign
“There is a time and a place for politics, but right now I am focused on representing the people of the Second District to the best of my ability and finding solutions that work for the American people,” Bright said in a statement. “I am pleased, however, that my campaign continues to be ready for any challengers in 2010. Until then, I will continue to be a strong, thoughtful, independent voice and work hard every day to advance Alabama and its citizens and communities."
Bright was recently ranked the second most independent of all members of Congress by Congressional Quarterly for voting with his party only 52% of the time. He also was the first freshman Democrat to sponsor a bill in the 111th Congress, which provided tax breaks for small businesses.
