Columbus FOP endorses Martin, mayor responds | Local News | Columbus Ledger Enquirer

The organization of more than 600 law enforcement personnel Wednesday announced it’s endorsing challenger Colin Martin in his bid to unseat incumbent Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson, whose position as the city’s chief executive also makes her public safety director.

FOP President Randy Robertson said the endorsement follows a telephone poll of the chapter’s membership, but he did not cite specific numbers. “Hundreds and hundreds” of members were surveyed, he said, and he estimated the support for Martin at 70 percent or more.

The mayor Wednesday night said the FOP never asked her side, and made its endorsement solely with input from Martin’s campaign: “The FOP has not had a forum, interviews or even written questions.”
