07-Dec-2012

All seven current and former auto dealers running for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives won on Election Day, mostly by comfortable margins. Winners include Roger Williams, R-Texas, a former Texas secretary of state who runs a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram store in suburban Fort Worth, and Jim Renacci, R-Ohio, the co-owner of a Chevrolet dealership that was rejected as General Motors went through bankruptcy. Winning re-election by more comfortable margins Tuesday were: Scott Rigell, R-Va, who owns Ford and Volvo dealerships; Mike Kelly, R-Pa., who owns a Chevrolet store; Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., who has sold some of his several dealerships and had his Dodge dealership rejected during the Chrysler bailout; John Campbell, R-Calif., who sold several dealerships, including one of the first Saturn stores, when elected in 2004; and Bill Shuster, R-Pa., who sold his Chrysler dealership when first elected in 2000.
