MONTGOMERY—Over the weekend, the Executive Committee of the Alabama GOP began hearing challenges to candidates who are seeking elected office as Republicans. Numerous petitions have been submitted to the ALGOP. As of yet there is no official word from the party. The final rulings will come at next week’s winter meeting.
The overwhelming majority of protests are based on the fact that certain ALGOP candidates have received campaign contributions from the Alabama Education Association (AEA). If taking money from the AEA is a disqualifying offense, then much of the current Republican Legislature, as well as the Governor, would be ineligible.
