Talk about a game-changer. Birmingham Mayor and media darling Randall Woodfin threw his support behind Tuscaloosa Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Walt Maddox in a joint press conference Thursday afternoon.

“From Mobile to Muscle Shoals, from Dothan to Decatur, from Woodlawn to West End. Alabama we deserve better… It is my great privilege to offer my endorsement and my support to Walt Maddox to be the next Governor of the great state of Alabama,” said Woodfin.

Maddox thanked Woodfin before taking the mic himself.

“Mayor Woodfin’s election last year was an indication that Alabama is standing on the threshold of a new generation of leaders. A generation of leaders that are focused on social, economic and environmental justice. Leaders who are focused on transparency and accountability. Leaders who are focused on results and not rhetoric. Leaders who transcend petty politics and the differences who once divided us. And leaders who believe in the future,” said Maddox. “Mayor Woodfin is a leader who believe all of those things and I am honored beyond measure to have his endorsement.”

Following the press conference, Maddox took to Facebook to share the news; “Extraordinarily honored to have the endorsement of Mayor Woodfin! #MaddoxMomentum,” he posted.
