Roby hires campaign manager
Roby, a Republican, is the only major party candidate who has said she is going to challenge the incumbent, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright of Montgomery.
Adair has spent the last two and a half years working for Mississippi Republican Party and was most recently the executive director.
He was the House Campaign Director for the Alabama Republican Party in the 2006 election cycle and coordinated the efforts of more than a dozen campaigns for candidates for the Alabama House of Representatives. Republicans were able to pick up a couple of seats of some veteran Democrats, but losses elsewhere kept the numbers in the House the same as they were before the campaign.
Adair, who received his bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Alabama, has extensive campaign experience. He grew up in Tallassee in the 2nd Congressional District.
The 2nd Congressional District includes 16 counties in central and southeastern Alabama.
