U.S. Rep. Martha Roby of Montgomery has been selected to lead the efforts for the southern region for the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2014.
She was selected as the Southern regional chair and will lead the committee’s digital, finance and political efforts in the South in 2014.
“It is as important as ever that we retain and grow our House Republican majority so we can begin the work of repairing the economic damage caused by the president and his policies,” Roby said.
Roby, who recently started her second term in the U.S. House, said she was honored to be selected.
The NRCC is very active in House races, especially in heavily contested districts.
After sweeping wins and taking control of the House in 2010, a horrid year for Democrats, the Republicans lost some seats in 2012 but maintained their majority.
“Martha is a true champion for conservative values in the House, and I know that she will make a strong addition to our team as we work to strengthen and build upon our majority,” said NRCC Chairman Greg Walden of Oregon.
Walden also appointed U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee as regional vice chair of the NRCC and her task will be to oversee all of the regional efforts.
The other regional chairs include: Rep. Steve Daines of Montana as the Central West regional chair, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois as Midwest regional chair, Rep. Devin Nunes of California as Western regional chair, and Rep. Tom Reed of New York as Northeast regional chair.
