Kay Ivey shuts down opponents, releases health report

0

After a little over a week of being called out by her Republican opponents for not releasing her medical records, where they insinuated the 73 year old had something to hide, Governor Kay Ivey on Wednesday shut down them down by releasing a letter from her doctor stating she’s in “excellent health.”

Montgomery, Ala.-based doctor Dr. Brian W. Elrod said Ivey has been his patient since May 13, 2003 and sees “no medical issues that would prevent her from fulfilling her obligations as Governor.”

“Governor Ivey has had physicals for the past fifteen years, and she is in excellent health,” Elrod wrote in his letter. “In addition to her complete annual exams, she has undergone all the recommended specialist evaluations to ensure a thorough health assessment. I see no medical issues that would prevent her from fulfilling her obligations as Governor.”

In releasing the doctor’s letter, Ivey’s campaign manager Mike Lukach called her opponents’ taunting a “misguided publicity stunt.”

“Sorry to ruin your misguided publicity stunt, but we’re confident you’ll find new ones,” said Lukach. “Meanwhile, Governor Ivey is going to stay focused on fighting for her conservative agenda to keep Alabama working.”
