Alabama Republican who un-endorsed Trump in 2016 forced into runoff election

Alabama Republican Rep. Martha Roby, who famously retracted the endorsement of then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016, was forced into a runoff election after failing to win the outright majority of votes.

Roby received the most votes in Tuesday’s GOP primary election in the state’s 2nd Congressional District, getting around 10 percent more votes than her closest challenger, Bobby Bright.

But the incumbent, who was elected four times, failed to reach the 50-percent threshold to settle the election on Tuesday night, meaning she will have to face Bright in the runoff election on July 17.
