    Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) announced Friday she will not seek a sixth term in Congress, further shrinking the ranks of Republican women in the House.

    The Alabama Republican — who narrowly escaped a bitter primary fight last year — had become a controversial figure in her home state after she disavowed her support for Donald Trump before he was elected president. Roby marks the fifth House Republican, and third this week, to announce a decision to retire.

    Given that Roby barely won in the 2018 primary, it sounds like there is probably a very strong R candidate waiting in the wings. And Roby's decision not to run could have been because she foresaw losing to that strong candidate in the 2020 primary.

    After living for a couple of years only 35 miles from the Alabama border, you're very correct. We lived in an area outside Pensacola. There was not one Hillary sign near us in that 2016 election, but the Trump signs were still up when we sold our house mid 2017 and returned to St Louis. That's Trump country in that area and the never-Trumpers aren't welcome down there by most of the party (based on our observations).

    I say good riddance to the traitor. She and the other republicans who did not support their president is a text book definition of a traitor. I.e. " A person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc.."they see me as a traitor, a sellout to the enemy" synonyms: betrayer · back-stabber · double-crosser · double-dealer · renegade · Judas · quisling · fifth columnist · viper · turncoat · defector · apostate · deserter · collaborator ·

    There are worst things than betraying our country, such as being a treasonous socialist progressive liberal democrat...Man is that enough prefixes? Anyway … I still can not watch cable news or even the local network news programs. After only three or four minuets I am talking to the TV. Even FOX is caving.
