“We are proud to endorse Caroleene Dobson for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District,”Austin said. “Caroleene understands the value of hard work and the challenges currently facing hard working American families. We trust that she will stand strong on our values of strong national security, fiscal responsibility, and limited government in Congress.”

“Maggie’s List does critical work in helping to elect fiscally conservative women to federal office across the country, and I am honored to receive their endorsement for my campaign for Congress,” said Dobson. “I will fight for our families, our farms, and our faith to ensure that the values of Alabama are represented and protected. It’s time to stop the invasion at our southern border, fix the economy, and restore accountability in Washington,” she continued.

Dobson is a distinguished attorney, wife, mother, District Two resident and a lifelong advocate for conservative values seeking the Republican nomination for Alabama’s Second Congressional District.

Born and raised in Beatrice, Alabama, Dobson grew up on her family’s fifth-generation cattle farm, where she says she learned the meaning of hard work and developed a firsthand understanding of the challenges faced by hardworking families and entrepreneurs.

A National Merit finalist and a U.S. Presidential Scholar, Dobson attended Harvard College, earning a degree in history and literature, and was an active member of the Harvard Republican Club. Dobson later attended Baylor Law School, where she graduated magna cum laude and was the articles editor for the Baylor Law Review.

Currently practicing real estate law at the Maynard Nexsen law firm, Dobson represents a diverse clientele, including homebuilders, retailers, small business owners, and private landowners. 

Dobson is a member of the Alabama Forestry Commission, an active member of the Federalist Society, and serves on the Board of the Southeastern Livestock Exposition.

Alongside her husband Bobby, Dobson is the parent of two daughters, Philippa and Lydia. She said her decision to run for Congress is deeply rooted in a desire to secure a future for her children and to champion the principles that have made America the land of the free.

“I’m not a career politician, but I really felt led to try and make a difference for my daughters. I want my daughters to be safe and healthy and have a future here in District 2 and not feel like they have to go off,” Dobson said. “You see young people having to go to Birmingham and Atlanta and Nashville to get jobs and on the other side, the older folks having to move to Pensacola to retirement communities and that just kills a town.”
