Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley filed the paperwork to run for governor. Baxley says the latest polling information has given her the confidence to go ahead with forming a campaign committee.
Even though Baxley filed the paperwork, she says she will hold a formal campaign announcement later and will unveil her campaign platform later.
The paperwork she filed with the secretary of state's office shows her campaign is chaired by Ann Payne, who's a past president of the Alabama Cattlemen's Association and a former Democratic candidate for agriculture commissioner.
The treasurer of Baxley's campaign is Gene Stabler, who spent years as Alabama's assistant state treasurer.
