Alabama Forestry Association http://apr.org en Governor Bentley Gets 1st Major Endorsement http://apr.org/post/governor-bentley-gets-1st-major-endorsement <P>The Alabama Forestry Association has thrown its support to Gov. Robert Bentley's re-election campaign.</P> <P>Bentley said Thursday the forestry group was the first major organization to endorse him in 2010 and now it's the first for the 2014 election. But there's a big difference. It didn't endorse him in 2010 until after he won the Republican primary.</P> <P>Executive Vice President Chris Issacson said the organization normally waits until after a contested primary like it did in 2010, but endorsing Bentley early for 2014 was a no-brainer.
