“Alabama is a conservative state, the 2nd district is a conservative district, and our conservative voices are not being heard. That’s where we feel Bright has failed us.

Roby, a city councilwoman, was trailing Bright 54 percent to 30 percent in an early March poll, but the GOP is waiting to see what happens to that lead after the primary is over and Republican opposition is solidified.

Correction: This article originally stated that Bright voted to let the health care bill out of Committee. That was incorrect.
