One thought on “Reconstruction is finally over

  1. The fact that Kay Ivey* won Lieut Gov against Jim Folsom II seems to hint that a lot of the Democratic redoubt was name recognition as a legacy from the pre-1964 era. “Big” Jim Folsom first held office as Governor in 1947, and last in 1959.

    * Given the direction the GOP is travelling, one wonders idly how many Alabama Republican primary voters heard the radio adverts and thought: “KIV? That’s the only true and inspired translation of Scripture! I’m voting for that! Hell yeah!”
