Baxley Kickoff Tomorrow
Baxley has been criticized for her campaign's lack of specifics on substantive issues. Since her posts as State Treasurer and Lieutenant Governor were more administrative than policy-making she has yet to become publicly identified with specific issues.
The other high profile gubernatorial candidates do not have this problem. Both Riley and Siegelman have a gubernatorial term to defend while Roy Moore is virtually synonymous with the 10 Commandments controversy. But Baxley has been able to cultivate an image as a non-controversial, scandal free public servant. Unfortunately for her, it takes more than that to reach the highest level of state politics.
In October I wrote a "memo" to the Lieutenant Governor giving her some unsolicited advice on how to run her race. I doubt she'll follow my blueprint too precisely, but tomorrow's event gives her a chance to inject some life into her campaign.
