The June 5 Republican and Democratic primary is only 39 days away and Alabama’s gubernatorial candidates have taken to the internet and the airwaves with campaign ads in hopes of swaying Yellowhammer State voters to their side.

Yet again this week, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and former Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb were the only two candidates to release new television ads.

In her new ad, Ivey mentions “mountain oysters” for the second time this campaign season, saying “don’t give me a mountain oyster and tell me it’s seafood.”

Cobb’s new ad takes a stab at the minimum wage reading, “anyone who works for a living; deserves a wage she can live on.” She has released new campaign ads for six weeks in a row, so while viewers might be tired of seeing the other gubernatorial candidates ads on repeat, hers ads are likely to be a breath of fresh air for voters across the state.
