MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Wetumpka Tea Party founder Becky Gerritson came out swinging on the first day of her quest to unseat Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL02), calling the three-term incumbent “one of the nation’s most liberal Republicans.”

“Since day one, Martha Roby has aligned herself with establishment insiders and failed politicians,” Gerritson said in a press release officially announcing her campaign. “We have waited for six years for her to vote and lead on the conservative principles she campaigned on, but we have yet to see her muster the courage to stand strong on the issues we care about.”
