Kay Ivey won her race for Lt. Governor in the Republican primary without a runoff. She spent much more in the primary than did Sen. Hank Erwin, her main opponent, and will now move on to the fall election. I believe Kay’s margin of victory was largely due to her name recognition and the fact that she is a very hard worker. It doesn’t hurt that she has the ability to finance her own campaign. Kay also will be able to raise substantial campaign money from some obvious sources. Since Kay has courted the Tea Party groups, it will be interesting to see if they become a real factor for her campaign this fall. It’s pretty well agreed that Jim can’t afford to take Kay lightly. I don’t believe he will.
