'Yella Fella' backing Byrne for Governor

Associated Press • September 9, 2009

The "Yella Fella" is helping Republican Bradley Byrne in his race for governor.
Byrne announced Wednesday that Abbeville businessman Jimmy Rane will serve as the general chairman for his campaign and will assist with fundraising and strategy.

Rane is best known for his "Yella Fella" TV ads for his Great Southern Wood company and as a trustee of Auburn University.
Rane said he's supporting Byrne because he has a wealth of knowledge and understanding that no other candidate can match.

Byrne served on the State Board of Education, as a state senator and as the state's two-year college chancellor before deciding to run for governor. He is one of six candidates seeking the Republican nomination in the primary in June 2010.
