Alabama Democratic Conference endorses Tabitha Isner

Monday, the Tabitha Isner for Congress campaign thanked the Alabama Democratic Conference for their endorsement.

Isner is running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Congress in Alabama’s 2ndCongressional District.

“Our state needs strong, principled leaders who will listen earnestly to the needs of the community and be held accountable for with both respect and actionable solutions,” Isner said. “I am honored to carry the ADC endorsement during this election cycle and will honor their concerns and hopes after I take office.”

On Saturday, the Alabama Democratic Conference endorsed Isner and other candidates ahead of the June 5 major party primaries.

The Alabama Democratic Conference is the largest black political organization in the state and urges that Alabama’s Black voters stand together for political strength through unity.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee along with national political organization, Swing Left, have identified Alabama’s Second Congressional District as a priority district – one that they have identified as a district that possibly can be “flipped” from Republican to Democrat in the 2018 midterm elections.

Isner, a pastor’s wife and early childhood policy expert, has. Although she is a first-time candidate, she has raised more money than any of Rep. Martha Roby’s, R-Montgomery, other challengers. She has also opened campaign offices in both Montgomery and Dothan.

Isner faces Audri Scott Williams in the Democratic primary.

Martha Roby faces several Republican challengers including: State Representative Barry Moore, former Chief Administrator of the Alabama Court System Rich Hobson, retired Army Sergeant Major Tommy Amason and former Congressman Bobby Bright.

Rep. Roby defeated Bright, who was then a Democrat, in the landmark 2010 election. Roby is seeking her fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The major party primaries are on June 5.
