7 Current and Former Auto Dealers Elected to Congress


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.
