As a complete political outsider, I personally believe this should be a one sided race. Pick me…. or pick the same old crap we have always had. And that is what it has been… crap. However, since I am starting my campaigning early, I will give my opponents the same chance. These are the candidates that would pose the best race.
I have no intentions of picking political insiders, because well…. I don’t think that is the route we should go.
The Republican party in the state of Alabama only has one clear choice… They have to allow Rick Burgess of the Rick and Bubba show to run against me in the 2018 race.
He has been in the media recently opposing the lottery. He also speaks at every major Christian rally in Alabama. As a huge voice (@bigvox) for the Christian Right, there is no choice that would be better.
He has an entrepreneurial mindset, a stable home, strong Christian values, and would be unable to be bought. This move just makes good sense.
The “round mound of rebound” has said a ton he should be the governor of Alabama. He has even hinted at running in the past. Originally, he was suggesting he would be a Republican nominee, but has recently stated he has swapped parties. Which makes perfect sense.
He supports gambling, has a more laid back value system, AND he has star power.
He would get the votes of the younger crowd, that the ultra-conservative Burgess wouldn’t appeal to.
I believe I am the happy medium. Logic, that is the key to winning this race. Even if the Republican and Democratic parties of Alabama don’t pick these particular candidates, that will be what will prevail.
I know the question would be asked, why would I pick such strong candidates to oppose me? Opposition is the fire that forges a good candidate. It has been stated that I have not been a fan of previous governors of the state, and that is the person that won. Their opposition was so bad that they were the BEST to choose from. I don’t think collectively the people of Alabama make terrible choices, I think we are just posed with a lesser of 2 evils situation.
Thank you for your continued support
