Citizens United Political Victory Fund is endorsing Becky Gerritson, founder of the Wetumpka, Alabama Tea Party, in her bid to defeat incumbent Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) in the March 1 GOP primary to represent Alabama’s Second Congressional District.

Gerritson electrified the nation when she testified before Congress about IRS abuses of Tea Party groups in 2013.

“Becky Gerritson is exactly what CUPVF looks for in a congressional candidate – she’s a principled conservative and a change agent. In today’s Washington, we require you to be both,” David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, says.

“By contrast, Congresswoman Martha Roby came to Washington in 2010 and quickly joined the club. These are serious times and America needs conservative leaders in Congress who will stand up to the reckless Obama-Clinton-Sanders agenda and stop kicking the can down the road. If you’re not willing to come to Congress to fight for change and solve major problems, why bother?” Bossie continued.

The Citizens United Political Victory fund is the affiliated PAC of Citizens United.
