There’s less than seven weeks to go until the Nov. 6 general election and things are relatively quiet in Alabama. That is, in terms of big, news-making headlines.
The one exception would be Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Walt Maddox who’s continuing to beat the drum that current Gov. Kay Ivey is refusing to debate him.
