The story of the 2018 election for Governor of Alabama following the disastrous second term of Gov. Robert Bentley. The people of Alabama strongly wanted a change from the self-serving, money-wasting Montgomery Insiders to a voice for Alabama taxpayers. Several of the usual suspects ran for governor with no track records of having stood up against the abuses of the Bentley administration. But one candidate had stood up in the Bentley years and, in 2018, stood out from the rest. Just as Americans voted to “drain the swamp” in the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, Alabama voters stood up and voted to “drain the marsh in Montgomery” in 2018.
