Over the years Labor Day had become the time of year when political candidates kicked off their campaigns, or at least let folks know for sure of their intention to run for public office. No serious candidate for Governor in Alabama would dare have missed the events held each year in the Tennessee Valley or in Mobile County. The crowds were always very good and lively and folks had a great time. But in recent years, potential candidates have already had their campaigns in high gear long before Labor Day rolls around.
The early start by present-day candidates with their campaigns has taken some of the luster off of what had been a very active and most entertaining political day. I really believe that the campaigns start much too early these days and by the time Election Day comes the public has been pretty well worn out with politics and with some politicians. The early starts also unduly increase the cost of campaigns. Clearly, times have changed and so have our politics.
