Bentley promises no negative ads in GOP runoff

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Robert
Bentley says he won't use any negative ads in the runoff campaign against Bradley Byrne.

Bentley, at a news conference Monday at the Capitol, said positive ads helped him finish second in the primary election and he will follow the same strategy for the runoff July 13. He said he is also urging organizations not to run attack ads on his behalf.

Byrne is already running an ad criticizing Bentley's legislative voting record.

Bentley traveled the state Monday to kick off his runoff campaign after a recount of the primary results showed he edged out Tim James for second place. Bentley said he is reaching out to supporters of the third-place finisher.
