“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men (or women) shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” — Samuel Adams 1780
“Anybody But Her!”
“I am not voting for Kay Ivey.” I heard this over and over from people across the state during my two years of campaigning for Governor of Alabama. Out of the thousands of people I interacted with, I only ran into a handful of people who said they were voting for Kay Ivey. Many others who traveled our state campaigning or working in various political groups have stated they heard the exact same sentiment. So how did Kay Ivey win the primary election without a run-off? Did people forget about her gas tax, her unnecessary and unconstitutional shutdown of businesses, churches and schools, her mask-mandate, and her harsh, false accusations against the “unvaccinated folks?” Or did compromised voting machines, lack of election security, and crossover Democrat votes get Kay Ivey (s)elected? Since the primary election on May 24th, many Alabamians have expressed that they do not believe that Kay Ivey legitimately won without a run-off. Likewise, many do not believe that I only received 11,720 votes.
Late in the evening of May 24th, CNN showed that I had 11,771 votes and yet the final tally reported by NPR the next day had me finishing with 51 LESS votes. In fact, all of the totals were different at the end of the night.
