All quiet on campaign trail with less than 7 weeks to go


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.

Otherwise, across the state, candidates are quietly making the rounds to events and campaign rallies.

Here’s a look at what some of the candidates in the statewide races have been up to this week according to their social media posts:
