Endorsements for Tuesday’s Primary electionPublished 9:36am Saturday, May 31, 2014
Our goal with the following endorsements is not to tell you how to vote. After talking with the candidates concerning their qualifications and stances on key issues, we’d like to offer this as a guide for those who have not decided who will get their vote.
We are simply sharing our opinion after speaking to the candidates, studying the issues and writing stories about the upcoming election. We encourage all voters to make up their own minds. The most important thing to do is to make your voice heard at the polls by voting on Tuesday, June 3. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Governor: Robert Bentley
