In Alabama’s Second Congressional District the Conservative Christians of Alabama endorsed the challenger, Becky Gerritson (R-Wetumpka) over incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Montgomery).
In Alabama’s Third Congressional District the group is endorsing challenger Larry Dichaira (R-Auburn) over incumbent Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Saks).

For State Board of Education District 7 Rhea Tays Fulmer (R) received the endorsement.
The group urged voters to vote, “YES on Amendment One. It is poorly worded. It does not provide a pension. It replaces an already-existing pension that the officials are not required to pay into with one that they do pay into.”
The group declined to make a Presidential race endorsement.
The Conservative Christians of Alabama said in a statement that they have, “Served Alabama since 1994. We were best known for leading the battle against the Siegelman Gambling Lottery of 1999, as we covered the state with 45,000 “No Lottery” yard signs. The tea party movement is not just about winning this election, it is about taking our country back.”
