Yellowhammer News: Sessions backs Roby in must-watch Alabama congressional primary

Posted to News on Jan. 14, 2016

I’ve been impressed with Martha Roby since she first came to Congress,” Senator Sessions said in a statement of support for the three-term representative.

“Martha took the VA head on to make sure veterans in our state get the quality care they deserve. It’s rare to see someone stand up to a federal agency and get results the way she did. Martha works hard every day for our military, especially at our key Maxwell and Ft. Rucker bases, and she is known as one of the strongest pro-life advocates in Congress.

“Martha fights for constituents,” Sessions concluded, “and she’s an important part of our state’s delegation.”

Responding to the endorsement, Roby told Yellowhammer she has counted on Sessions’ advice since taking office in 2011.

“Senator Sessions is a bold, dynamic leader Alabamians are proud of, and I’m grateful to have his support,” she said. “His breadth of knowledge on issues is unrivaled, which is why I have sought his counsel since even before I got to Congress. I admire Senator Sessions greatly, and I am grateful for his leadership within our delegation and our state.”
