Alabama Governor Seeking Second Term

Gov. Robert Bentley has announced he will seek a second term.


The 70-year-old Republican governor put to rest Tuesday any speculation about his future plans.


House Speaker Mike Hubbard says he has no plans to run against Bentley.


Bradley Byrne, who finished second to Bentley in the GOP race in 2010, says he hasn't decided what he will do in 2014. Tim James, who finished a close third, says he's not running now, but you never say never in politics.


Alabama Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead says he doesn't expect any serious candidate to challenge Bentley in the Republican primary as long as his polling numbers remain high.
