Congresswoman Martha Roby announced Friday that she will not seek a sixth term in Congress. Roby was first elected to Congress in 2010 after defeating Congressman and former longtime Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright in one of the closest elections of the year. Prior to being elected to Congress, Roby worked as an attorney and served on the Montgomery City Council.

On credit union issues, Roby supported The Financial Choice Act, preserving NCUA’s independence from the congressional appropriations process, and S. 2155, Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, and the credit union tax exemption. In 2017, she was named LSCU’s Alabama Federal Lawmaker of the Year.

With Roby not running for re-election, the Republican primary for the Second Congressional District will be highly competitive.  This will add another heated primary to the 2020 election calendar.  Competitive GOP primaries are expected not only in this seat but in the race for the Mobile-based First Congressional District and the U.S. Senate seat that is currently held by Sen. Doug Jones.  Primary elections will be held on March 3 with runoffs on March 31.
