GOP candidates for Alabama governor debate tonight

YRFA logoIt’s time to hear from the Republican candidates for governor.

Two local media outlets have made it easy for you to do just that from the comfort of your home this evening (provided you’re not hearing about this after 8:30 p.m. via Twitter or Facebook).

The Young Republican Federation of Alabama (YRFA) is hosting a gubernatorial debate tonight in Birmingham, AL at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center between Robert Bentley and Bradley Byrne. It’s being sponsored by the student government associations of the University of Alabama and Auburn University and will begin at 8:30 p.m. (though a pre-debate party started at 7 p.m.).

Don’t worry about not being there though (especially since they’re expecting the space for the event itself to max out at 150 people) as both AL.com and WAPI 100.5 FM are simulcasting it. We’re also assuming that AL.com will be providing an archived copy of the live stream after the event is finished. NBC13‘s Jon Paepcke will be serving as moderator.

The winner of the July 13 runoff will face Democratic nominee Ron Sparks.

Artur joins the Twitterverse

Call us crazy over here, but follow along and see if we’re on the same page as everyone else…

A poll was unveiled on the 26th by Anzalone-Liszt (and shared via Doc’s Political Parlor yesterday) showed results that favored Congressman Artur Davis as he determines whether or not he may run for governor in 2010. Then this afternoon your favorite neighborhood hub is invited to become a follower of the U.S. Representative’s new Twitter feed

So we’re just wondering “When this ‘potential’ run becomes an actual one?”

A look back: July 10


Alabama’s first Governor, William Wyatt Bibb died in office. Thomas Bibb, as President of the Senate, succeeded his brother as Governor.
