Roby has since said she was deeply honored by such words of support from a man she so greatly admires.
“Senator Sessions is a bold, dynamic leader Alabamians are proud of, and I’m grateful to have his support,” Roby said in response to Sessions’ endorsement. “His breadth of knowledge on issues is unrivaled, which is why I have sought his counsel since even before I got to Congress. I admire Senator Sessions greatly, and I am grateful for his leadership within our delegation and our state.”
- 36 mayors representing every county in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District, who cited Roby’s strong support for local military bases and involvement in community initiatives;
- The Alabama Farmers Federation, who said Roby has been “extremely responsive” to farmers’ concerns on federal issues. Agriculture is Alabama’s largest industry, supporting more than 93,000 jobs in AL-2; and
- The Alabama Patriots, the state’s oldest Tea Party organization, whose leader, Danny Joyner touted Roby’s work fighting to protect the unborn and defend Second Amendment rights.
