Bentley Moves Gov. Campaign Out of Pate Building

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Tuscaloosa real estate developer Stan
Pate says political differences between him and Republican
gubernatorial nominee Robert Bentley caused him to tell Bentley to
move his campaign headquarters from one of Pate's buildings.

Bentley's campaign says the move was prompted by a need for more
space for a growing number of volunteers.

Pate, a major campaign contributor who is an outspoken critic of
Republican Gov. Bob Riley, had been supplying office space in
Tuscaloosa for Bentley's campaign.

The Tuscaloosa News reported Friday that the disagreement
between Pate and Bentley stems from Pate's claim that Riley had
made an improper offer to Bentley. Bentley has disputed that any
offer was ever made.
