Tomorrow’s filing deadline for political candidates is prompting several Democrats to announce their intentions.  House minority leader Craig Ford of Gadsden says he’ll run for re-election rather than seeking higher office.  He had been considering a run for Governor or Lieutenant Governor but says he can do more from the state legislature. 

Meanwhile, Florence Democrat Tammy Irons says she will NOT be seeking re-election.  The Republican majority redrew her district significantly.  She says her expanded district could mean she’d have less time with her family and law practice.
