Ivey's communications director, Mark Powell, said she will fly across the state to make announcements in Montgomery, Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile.
Ivey will join a Republican field that already includes Greenville businessman Tim James, former Chief Justice Roy Moore, former two-year college Chancellor Bradley Byrne and state Rep.
