A Word On The 2010 Political Race In Alabama...

Last night, at the local GOP meeting, we had an opportunity to meet a candidate for Attorney General. His name is Luther Strange. He seemed to be a nice guy (don't all politicians?) despite the fact that he has worked closely with former Alabama Attorney Generals Bill Pryor and Jeff Sessions.
The most interesting thing is that his opponent, current AG Troy King, is supported by gambling interests in the state of Alabama. There are no announced Democrats in this race.

Another race to keep an eye on is the race for the Lieutenant Governor position. State Senator Hank Erwin vs current Lt. Governor "Little Jim" Folsom. Hank Erwin is outspokenly pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-traditional marriage. I have read some articles that blame him for compromise in his Senate voting record.

Fast fact for you: Alabama has not been controlled by Republicans since Reconstruction.
That's not necessarily a bad thing!
