In a campaign that came down to loyalty to President Donald Trump, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby, R-Ala., overwhelmingly defeated pro-Trump conservative Bobby Bright on Tuesday in a GOP primary runoff election for her seat in Congress. Roby captured 67 percent of the vote, after earning only 39 percent in a five-candidate primary field in June. Since no candidate earned a majority of the vote, it forced a runoff between the four-term incumbent and second-place finisher Bright. Roby is favored to win reelection in November against Democrat Tabitha Isner.
