Martha Roby thanks Jeff Sessions for his support in her re-election

Martha Roby and Jeff Sessions
On March 1, Republican voters in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District will head to the polls to cast their ballots between incumbent U.S. Rep. Martha Roby and challenger Wetumpka Tea Party leader Becky Gerritson — and if Alabama’s conservative Sen. Jeff Sessions has anything to say about it, Roby will emerge the victor.
“I’ve been impressed with Martha Roby since she first came to Congress,” Sessions said in a release Wednesday. “Martha took the VA head on to make sure veterans in our state get the quality care they deserve.  It’s rare to see someone stand up to a federal agency and get results the way she did.  Martha works hard every day for our military, especially at our key Maxwell and Ft. Rucker bases, and she is known as one of the strongest pro-life advocates in Congress. Martha fights for constituents, and she’s an important part of our state’s delegation.”

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.”

Sessions isn’t the only throwing his support behind the Republican incumbent. Roby’s re-election has been bolstered in recent months by a strong showing of support from influential figures, well-known organizations and grassroots conservatives. She has also been endorsed by:
