This is a verbatim press release from Rich Hobson for Congress.
Montgomery, Ala. — Today, the Rich Hobson for Congress Campaign announced conservative leader Becky Gerritson as the head of Women for Hobson. Gerritson, who challenged District 2 incumbent Martha Roby in 2016, is the founder and president of the Wetumpka Tea Party.
“Throughout his career, Rich Hobson has distinguished himself as a true conservative,” said Gerritson. “I was proud to be with him when he announced his candidacy, and I am proud to stand with him now, heading up the campaign’s efforts to mobilize women to vote for a candidate who believes in our shared traditional values and in protecting our constitutional rights. It’s imperative that we send someone to Congress who puts service before self, and I look forward to working to get the word out to women across the district that that’s exactly what Rich Hobson will do.”
In addition to the leadership she provides to the Wetumpka Tea Party, which she and her husband founded in 2009, Gerritson has testified before Congress twice regarding abuse of power in the Internal Revenue Service. She served on the Alabama Constitutional Revision Committee and serves as the Alabama State Coordinator for the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness. In 2012, in her role as political correspondent for BIG Voices Media she interviewed notable conservative leaders from across the country.
“Becky has been on the front lines of the fight to restore conservative values to our government and our culture for years,” said Hobson. “I’m proud to have her on our team, and I’m confident her leadership will play a key part in our efforts to take our conservative message and values to Washington.”
Hobson has had a long and successful career with the Alabama state court system, having served twice as its director, and has an extensive record of leadership and service as a strong Christian conservative leader. He recently served as campaign manager for the Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign. He is running with a committed focus on three key policy areas: rebuilding our military, putting America on a path to permanent prosperity, and reminding Americans that our Judeo-Christian values are what made our nation great.
The Republican primary election is scheduled for June 5.
