On Thursday, October 1, Wetumpka Tea Party co-founder and President Becky Gerritson is expected to announce that she will challenge incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) in the coming GOP Primary on March 1.

Gerritson will make her announcement at 9:30 am in Gold Star Park, in downtown Wetumpka.

Gerritson said in a statement, “Over the years, many of us have expressed our frustration over our nation’s woes and the incompetence of our political ‘leaders.’  As patriots who love this country, it has been agonizing for us to see our Founders’ vision trampled on by our radical president and our do-nothing Congress.  That is why I’ve decided that it is time that I step forward to play a more direct role in getting on nation back on track.”
