I've just started researching the candidates and don't know any of them other than Ivey.

For those who say they don't like Odle, why not?

I have no idea who I'll vote for in the next election. If someone stronger comes along, I'll go with them.

But I must say, this new ad from Governor Ivey is quite funny.

I’m conflicted by this as well.  But Ivey needs to go.  Other than the weird flat earther stuff I may give my vote to Odle.  Is there a better candidate?

Thanks for posting!  I looked them up.  Couple of questions.  What are their views on firearms?  What are their views on the cv shots and masks?  

Really looking for candidates that are for smaller gov and for more freedom.

I believe Lindy is against Masks and Vaccine Mandate.  Which Is good in my opinion.

I have a problem with Lindy.  She is trying to run on her Trump appointment to the ambassador of Slovenia?  Who GAF?  What will she do for constitutional carry?

I will say that Me Maws last Biden hit piece commercial was pretty funny.    Bless his heart.

Edit** Everyone running for any office in AL is anti-mask.  If they aren't, then they have no chance.  That is nor a decision point.

Pretty sure Dean Odle is.  I doubt Meemaw is.  Anyone know the other candidates stance?

Yep... I was listening to Dale Jackson last year and he had Dean odle on his show. That is just on of the things that told me no way on him. I am not a fan of Dale Jackson but his show was on the radio when i was listening.

And from Dean Odle himself on his campaign website:

I don't put any weight on the NRA endorsement (life member here).  I really wish Tommy Battle was in the race.  But, as it stands I'm stuck with MeeMaw.  She was nowhere Desantis level during Covid but she didn't totally F' it up, the economy in North AL is rolling.  

Lindy, uh, no.  Only claim to fame is some ambassador to some semi third world country due to $$ donations.  James, uh, no.  See above posts.  Although I do like his most recent commercial that airs during the 5am local news.  Once again it comes down to the least negative choice.....

I'd rather dump MeeMaw out but it's not looking good.  I'm afraid, once she gets four more years, that China Bay Bridge will come back and get passed.  It's obvious that she only put on her conservative hooded cloak just as the new year got here.

According to the political ads this morning in the governor's race it appears that THE most important issue is transgenders in schools.  Why do R politics always boil down to nonsense fucking issues in the end.  Tim James attacks on Trans and Meemaw defends with her passed transgender restrictions.  Whatever you do don't address anything actually important PLEASE!

Don't forget the "I stand with Trump" line that all of them are using.  Ok, that's great, good for you.  I voted for him every time he was on the ballot.  Guess what, he isn't on the ballot this time.  Tell me what you are going to do to advance his ideas and policies, lower my taxes, reduce regulations, change politics, etc.  

You were an ambassador to some almost 3rd world world country under DJT, great.  That doesn't tell me anything about what you plan to do to help this state.  

Side note, checked the mail this afternoon.  I had three Britt campaign flyers.  Three in one day, all addressed to "The "my last name" Family".  All three went in the trash without reading them.

Every AL politico wannabe is trying to invoke Trump.  Mo, stood up for him.....

I was going to just vote Memah again, but I got to meet Tim James this week and changed my mind.  He was traveling with Bill Armisted, who used to be my state senator.  

I have the deepest respect for Bill, more than any politician in AL.  His views on almost every single issue align with mine.  Few remember it but we had zero, none, no reciprocity for CCW with any state nor any provision for it until Russ Fine (former AM radio talk guy) and I talked Bill into introducing the first measure back in the late 90's and he got it through.  I am rarely swayed by somebody else endorsement, but the fact Bill believes in Tim strongly enough to step out of retirement and be his chief advisor and campaign manager did sway me.

I'm voting James.

I went to a proclamation signing yesterday at the Capitol.  Ivey didn't say much to anyone.

After the signing was over, we stopped by to see Jim Ziegler, but he was not feeling well.  Talking outside his office, Ivey and her security detail walked by.  One of the guys in our group stopped her and talked to her.  She didnt' say much, just a smile and nod and thank you.  I watched her walk away to her office, and she was moving very slowly and stiffly, like it was difficult for her to walk.  She's 77 now, and I don't see how she's going to be well enough to finish out another term if she is reelected.  Unless she's just a puppet like Biden.

Every time I've heard Lindy Blanchard speak, it sounds like she just woke up from a nap. I was considering James. This morning on the radio he phoned in and the proceeded to make a fumbling plea for support which he closed with a scripture quote/paraphrase. I hate all that 'Vote for me, I'm a Christian' and 'Look at me hold a pistol' crap in these ads.

Looking like I'll be writing in "None of the above" as my choice for Governor in November.

And before the "throwing away your vote" starts, I'm tired of voting for Republicans who only act like Republicans to get elected.  Ivey locked down the state, forced us to wear masks, complained it was anti-C-vaxx that were causing the problems, and then gave us a gas tax and vehicle registration increase that will automatically go up and there's not a darn thing you can do about it.  

She doesn't deserve my vote.  Let's Go Kay!

My comment when I woke up Wednesday was that 350,000 Alabamians lost any right they had to bitch about Brandon  being old and unfit for office when they just gave someone just as old another shot to die in office.

What was it she said one of those shitty campaign ads . . . oh yeah, bless her heart.

I guess you can see from the results that this issue you seem to believe to be so important didn't result in us getting rid of meemaw, which was the real biggest issue of the election.  All challengers failed because instead of talking to us about things that are important they spend their campaign money on ads about a handful of crazy crossdressers.

Maybe in 4 years we will get someone to run that ACTUALLY understands the difference between DRAMATIC and IMPORTANT.

MeMaw ran on the issue as well and pushed ads touting her signing recent legislation to stave off attacks from James and Blanchard that she wasn’t conservative enough. Those two split the vote and had either dropped out would have resulted in a runoff.

So, the majority of the Republican voters here felt it was an important issue. Otherwise, Ivey wouldn’t have bothered spending money to defend her record. I shouldn’t have to explain why it was an important issue or have you actually taken the time to look at how that demographic tends to vote?

Well I did vote for James and I will vote for Ivy during the election.  The last thing we need is what we got in Virginia after someone was not conservative enough.  12 years of democrats.  

At least they passed constitutional carry against the so called sheriffs using it as a revenue stream.
