Democrats' Websites Launch
It has been twelve long years since Democrats have held either the Attorney General's office or the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Speculation has abounded for months that the Democrats have had two heavyweights lined up to take these offices back from the GOP. The rumor mill has had Mobile County DA John Tyson, Jr. and appellate judge Sue Bell Cobb waiting in the wings to run for Attorney General and Chief Justice, respectively.
Yet, as of this date neither Tyson nor Cobb has officially announced a candidacy. However, with a little sleuthing and a tip from some of our loyal readers, we've discovered campaign sites for each of these candidates.
Both John Tyson, Jr. and Sue Bell Cobb are the best candidates Dems could have gunning for each race. The Democrats still have to find a candidate for state auditor and treasurer and also have several judicial slots to fill. But with the candidacies of Tyson and Cobb now looking certain, the Democrats are well on their way to having their strongest ticket in a long time.
