MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks is getting some well-known help in his Democratic campaign for governor.

Gentry told the crowd that Sparks "is the kind of guy we need for governor."

Sparks said he and Gentry attended the same high school in Fort Payne and played football together.
