The announcement from Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) earlier this year that she would not be seeking another term as Alabama’s second congressional district representative opened up what some see shaping up to be one of the more interesting GOP congressional primaries in the country this election cycle.
As of last week, former Alabama Attorney General Troy King, Alabama State Rep. Will Dismukes (R), former Alabama State Rep. Barry Moore (R) and Dothan, AL businessman Jeff Coleman have announced their intentions to seek the nod. On Monday, Prattville, AL businesswoman Jessica Taylor added her name to the mix with a video that featured athletic and professional highlights of her career, and took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the so-called “Squad.”
The spot earned her an invitation on FNC’s “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.
Taylor is a mother of three and wife to active duty national guardsman, Iraq war veteran, former Alabama state senator, and former general counsel to Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) Bryan Taylor.
