IVEY VS. MADDOX DEBATE
Tuscaloosa Mayor and Democratic Alabama Governor Candidate Walt Maddox challenged opponent and incumbent Republican Candidate Kay Ivey to a series of 4 scheduled debates leading up to the November 6th Elections. Maddox’s office said this in a statement (July 31st), “7 days and still no answers. Governor, will you or will you not debate so that the people of Alabama can decide our state’s future?”. Governor Ivey’s office called the debates a “media stunt”. Ivey and Maddox met for the first time at the Alabama Sheriff’s Association Training Conference in Orange Beach, AL on Monday. Both candidates respectfully shook hands in front of the crowd beside Alabama’s Secretary of State John Merrill and Alabama’s Attorney General Steve Marshall (both previously interviewed by The Truth Gazette, thetruthgazette.com/interviews). Will a debate happen soon? Not likely.
