Montgomery, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery City Councilwoman Martha Roby has confirmed that she is going to run for Congressional District 2 in Alabama.

In a statement to WSFA 12 News, Roby says that she has filed her Statement of Candidacy and Statement of Organization with the Federal Election Commission, which allows her to begin to raise the resources necessary for a campaign.

"For the past six years on the Montgomery City Council, I've used common-sense leadership and conservative Alabama values to guide my decision making, and in Congress I will continue to apply those same principles when seeking solutions to get this country back on track."

"This election is about the hardworking people that want to live, work and raise a family here in central and southeast Alabama.  I will continue to listen to these voters in the coming months as we work to build a grassroots campaign based on the leadership that Alabama families are calling for in Washington."

"Riley and I are both humbled and gratified at the tremendous amount of encouragement we've received.  We're excited about this opportunity and look forward to a great campaign."

A more formal and official announcement tour launching the campaign will be made at a later date.
