A key spokesman and major fundraiser for Judge Roy Moore has entered the Republican race for Lieutenant Governor. Dean Young of Orange Beach, who announced his candidacy on January 26th, served as a fundraiser and spokesman when Judge Moore was campaigning for Chief Justice and during the Judge’s legal battle to display the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. I understand that Dean also helped the Judge launch his current race for governor. He told The Associated Press, however, that his campaign for Lieutenant Governor is separate from the Moore campaign. Dean is now a homebuilder and real estate agent on the Alabama coast. He is making his second bid for state office. Dean ran unsuccessfully for Secretary of State in 2002.
Others seeking the GOP nomination for Lt. Governor are Baldwin County school teacher Gene Ponder and Senator Hank Erwin of Montevallo. Jim Folsom, the incumbent, will likely be unopposed in the Democratic primary. He will be the overwhelming favorite to gain another term.
