Auditor Activity

Another Republican has entered the Auditor's race. Wes Allen, a Troy University employee, announced his candidacy this week. Allen is the son of sometimes controversial State Rep Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa). You may remember Gerald Allen from his recent battle to ban school library books with gay themes or characters. Allen's bill didn't go anywhere in the legislature, but it got plenty of attention both in the state and national media.

Allen's entry further divides a field that already had no clear frontrunner. None of the announced candidates are well known or have prior elective experience. Unless a higher profile candidate (say a Jim Bennett type) enters the race, the election will almost certainly revolve around each candidate's home base.

Samantha Shaw is the Montgomery County GOP chair, Wes Allen has ties to Tuscaloosa, Chess Bedsole's roots are in Mobile, and Tripp Skipper is based in Auburn. Assuming no more candidates emerge (which is no sure bet) the race will be won by the candidate who can secure his or her base and make inroads into the rest of the state. This race seems headed for a runoff, as there is no reason to expect one candidate to run away from the pack.

If I had to guess I'd expect a Shaw/Bedsole runoff, but it is really too early to try to handicap such a fluid race.

Oh, and the Democrats still don't have a candidate.

A Shaw/Bedsole runoff would be good; they seem to be the best qualified candidates

Jim Bennett would not be a good candidate for auditor. he filed bankruptcy several years ago. Does the State need that type of experience!?
