Alabama's 53rd Governor

     I spent a few hours with each of the nominees this week. You can watch the resulting reports online at the CBS-8 website, click on the name links for each report. I traveled to Auburn and Montgomery with Republican Robert Bentley, and to Hayneville in Lowndes County and Camden in Wilcox County with Democrat Ron Sparks.

 The contrast of locations was striking.

     I'm not sure if I should mention Bradley Byrne, though there's a mini-movement to nominate him as a write-in candiate. (The GOP says it's a plot by a \Democratic operative trying to siphon votes away from Bentley.)
     Speaking of Byrne, he'll be our guest live on election night, providing a unique perspective on the results. Join me during the 8:00 -9:00 hour for his commentary. He'll be especially interesting, since as recently as six months ago, the smart money (mine included) expected he and lame duck Rep. Artur Davis to be fighting it out on November 2nd.

[UPDATE: Blogger Wade Kwon up in Birmingham has an interesting take on who will win or lose based on Facebook "likes"... if it's accurate, watch for some Anderson over Strange.]
