Maddox campaign: Senate doesn’t care what Ivey thinks about Supreme Court pick

It perhaps seemed a bit unusual that Gov. Kay Ivey quickly issued a statement of support Monday night in support of President Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. And maybe it seemed out of the ordinary for Ivey to issue a second statement on Tuesday, calling on her Democratic opponent in the governor’s race, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, to join her in supporting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the high court.

Alabama Democrats optimistic Walt Maddox can beat Kay Ivey

Alabama Democrats – for years obliterated from all statewide offices in the Deep South and deeply red state – go into the fall election season with high optimism, but fighting tough math and historical trends, as they seek to build off last year’s victory of U.S. Sen.
