Becky Gerritson, President of the Wetumpka Tea Party, who became a conservative hero for her eloquent testimony against government abuse of citizens in the Lois Lerner IRS scandal, is now a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress in Alabama’s Second Congressional District.  Gerritson has issued a statement in the wake of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s withdrawal from the race for Speaker that is a clarion call from new leadership in Congress that every conservative on Capitol Hill should heed.

We are witnessing a collapse in confidence in the Establishment ruling class as the base of the Republican Party demands better, more conservative government from our leadership.
