Tabitha Isner, Democratic nominee in the race to represent Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, spoke to Troy University’s College Democrats Monday about the role she would take if elected.

“It is a big deal that I am able to do this and run for congress,” Isner said.

Isner describes herself as a foster-adoptive mom, pastors wife and an early education expert. She spoke on her top priorities and also taught attendees on how laws and bills are passed and not passed in congress.

“Congress is set up where you can’t get things done or it takes a very long time and that is OK,” Isner said. “Our country is working OK, and it prevents too many bad laws from getting passed.”

As she runs for the congressional spot, Isner believes that it is better that people know how she thinks before she talks about platforms and that we are all a part of a big machine.

Instead of stating platforms or “sending memos to congress,” Isner says she is a problem- solver and will work hard to seek solutions.

She will go head-to-head with Republican Martha Roby on Tuesday, November 6. Roby has held the position since 2011.
