Special election for Alabama Senate seat moved up

Governor moves special election for US Senate seat Governor Ivey moves special election for US Senate seat to later this year

Bentley appointed former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange to the seat and said the election would coincide with the 2018 scheduled elections.

The winners will face off in the general election on December 12, 2017.

"I promised to steady our ship of state".

State law says if a U.S. Senate vacancy occurs more than four months before a general election, "the Governor of Alabama shall forthwith order an election to be held by the qualified electors". "The new US Senate special election dates this year are a victory for the rule of law".

Governor Ivey says the decision to move the date up nearly a year was not rushed. He argued that moving the election to an earlier date would cost billions of dollars.

However, he said he's not getting into this race to make friends; especially with new campaign rival Sen. "If we move the date, it will cost about $15 million that will come straight out of the General Fund budget".

The far-right 45Committee, financed in large part by Sheldon Adelson and the wealthy Ricketts family, is apparently starting a feud with the far-right Club for Growth, using Georgia's congressional special election as a proxy fight. Candidates must qualify with political parties by mid-May, Secretary of State John Merrill announced Tuesday.

Former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange now occupies the seat, after being appointed by former Governor Robert Bentley to the position earlier this year.

Ivey last week replaced fellow Republican Robert Bentley as governor after he resigned amid impeachment proceedings in the legislature. Odd was appointed to the position by Bentley, who ultimately resigned mere months later.

"As the only announced candidate for this office, I will spend the next several months being the best Senator I can be, upholding Alabama values and working with President Donald Trump to drain the swamp and help make America great again", odd said.
