With the gas tax debate heating up on Goat Hill, Alabama residents across the state are waiting to see whether or not their representatives support the new tax.

Baron Coleman — lawyer, radio talk show host and political consultant — is no different. On his radio show Wednesday, Coleman took a hard stand against Gov. Kay Ivey‘s gas tax and pledged to run against his own Representative in Montgomery, Reed Ingram, should he vote in favor of the tax.

Ingram, who represents House District 75 (Pike Road), was first elected to office in 2014. A challenge from Coleman would be Ingram’s first — he easily sailed into office having not opposition in the Republican primary in both 2014 and 2018.

Coleman presumably has a high name ID and would give Ingram quite the challenge. His conversational radio show, News and Views airs each week day from nine to noon on WACV 93.1 FM in the Montgomery market.
