2018 statewide election ad roundup: August 31 edition

The November 6 general election is less than 70 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.

For the third week in a row, Walt Maddox was the only statewide candidate to release a new ad; the latest in 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 the topic of school safety.
