MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The race to become the Republican nominee for the second congressional district, between incumbent Martha Roby and Bobby Bright, is one day away from wrapping up with a runoff.

Roby defeated then-incumbent Bright eight years ago in a very close race. Bright feels he has the experience and the maturity to represent the second congressional district.

"That's what I bring back, not to mention honesty and integrity and most important, a maturity. You can go to Washington and be too immature and Washington will get the best of you," said Bright.

"I've been running on my conservative record and I am going to continue to do that, fighting for Alabama's military, veterans, farmers, border security," said Roby.

Roby is scheduled to make an appearance Monday in Abbeville. The winner of Tuesday's primary runoff election will face Democratic opponent Tabitha Isner in the November election.

Autauga County and Elmore County are the northern parts of the second district, which winds its way down to the Florida and Georgia lines.
