Roby First to Denounce Trump

By Bill Britt

MONTGOMERY—US Representative Martha Roby became the first member of Alabama Congressional Delegation to denounce Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.

In an early morning press release, Roby said, “Donald Trump’s behavior makes him unacceptable as a candidate for president, and I won’t vote for him.”

Roby’s denouncement of Trump comes after a recording emerged of Trump bragging about getting away with sexually assaulting women and craven attempts at adultery. 

“As disappointed as I’ve been with his antics throughout this campaign, I thought supporting the nominee was the best thing for our country and our party,” said Roby. “Now, it is abundantly clear that the best thing for our country and our party is for Trump to step aside and allow a responsible, respectable Republican to lead the ticket.”

Throughout the Republican primary, Roby said she would support the eventual nominee. When Trump secured the nomination, she called on him to show a presidential temperament and embrace a return to Constitutional order.

“Hillary Clinton must not be president, but, with Trump leading the ticket, she will be,” Roby concluded.
