Thursday, October 1, an estimated 120 people were in a park in Wetumpka to hear Becky Gerritson formally declare her candidacy for the Republican nomination for Congress representing Alabama’s Second Congressional District.

The prominent Wetumpka Tea Party co-founder and President said in a statement, “I am humbled to announce to you and the people of Alabama that I am running for Congress and the right to represent you, fight for you and your family, and stand up for our Constitution!”

Gerritson said, “Already, I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support our campaign is receiving from the people of the Second District, and I cannot wait to meet each of you as I campaign hard throughout the district. While I know that our opposition will outspend us, what we are fighting for is too important for us to sit on the sidelines!”
