ARAB, Ala. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert Bentley is attacking Democratic opponent Ron Sparks' plan to create a state lottery to pay for college scholarships. Bentley says it's not the government's job to pay for college education.
Sparks is criticizing Bentley's promise to work as governor
without pay until unemployment drops to normal levels. Sparks says he will take the $112,000 salary because, unlike his opponent, he's not a wealthy man.
The two squared off Thursday at a forum in Arab. It is one of several forums they are having before the election Nov. 2.
