MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Republican field for lieutenant
governor has shrunk.
Gulf Shores businessman Dean Young dropped out Friday. Young, a
former aide to Ten Commandments Judge Roy Moore, says he made the
decision after State Treasurer Kay Ivey switched from the
governor's race to the lieutenant governor's contest.
Young says Ivey is a strong candidate who's a fiscal
conservative, and that's what the state needs.
Ivey has opposition in the GOP primary June 1 from state Sen.
