2018 statewide election ad roundup: August 24 edition

The November 6 general election is less than 80 days away and Alabama’s candidates have taken to the internet and the airwaves with campaign ads in hopes of swaying Yellowhammer State voters to their side.

This week, only Democratic gubernatorial candidate Walt Maddox released a new ad.

Maddox has called Governor Kay Ivey to debate him several times, and each time she’s dismissed his proposals saying; “When he finishes debating himself he can talk.”

In response, Maddox has released a series of ads where an invisible announcer addresses an empty debate podium labelled “Kay Ivey,” asking the podium a series of questions.

The empty podium never answers; leaving the announcer to ask “Governor Ivey? Governor?”

Maddox then responds to the question himself, securing his positions on issues from his pro-life stance, to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh‘s confirmation.

This week Maddox addresses a series of topics including corruption and ethics laws, former Chief Justice Roy Moore‘s misconduct, and infrastructure.
