Alabama U.S. Representative Martha Roby will have some competition in this year's election.
Erick Wright announced he's running for the District 2 Congressional Seat.
Wright is a Troy University graduate. If elected, Wright says he'll stay away from partisanship to serve his constituents.
"I want to make sure that everybody knows that, this campaign is not about blue or red, or conservative, or liberal, it's about doing the right thing for the people that's in this district, and making sure
we hold our elected officials accountable for what they do and for what they don't do," says Wright.
Wright says he wants to restore faith in the public process. He used to be in the insurance business but has now moved into a career in politics.
