The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) has officially endorsed Caroleene Dobson, one of the few Republican candidates running in the newly drawn second congressional district in the 2024 election.

The Montgomery-based attorney Dobson was the first Republican to announce her candidacy for the seat, which is expected to be a shoo-in for any of the 13 Democratic candidates running.

Founded in 1898, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association is the marketing organization and trade association for cattle farmers and ranchers.

"Caroleene Dobson's legal experience combined with a lifetime of ties to the agricultural community make her a strong advocate for America's farming future," NCBA said in a statement. "She represents the advocacy and integrity that the NCBA holds in high regard."

Dobson grew up on a multi-generational cattle farm. She later attended Harvard University, earning a history and literature degree. She later obtained her law degree from Baylor University Law School. She is currently a member of the Alabama Forestry Commission.

 "It is an honor to be endorsed by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association," Dobson said. "As a member of Congress, I will continue to fight for our families, our farms, and our faith and preserve the bedrock values and moral backbone that have made our nation the greatest ever known."
