UNION GROVE, Ala. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Stacy George has opened his campaign headquarters in a north Alabama grocery store.
George says he and volunteers decided to open the headquarters at Union Hill Grocery in Union Grove on Monday because it was the first day of fundraising for the 2014 elections. George says `he has the message and the manpower for a campaign, but it will be up to the people of Alabama to determine if he has the money.
George served two terms on the Morgan County Commission before losing a re-election bid in 2008. He is the only announced opponent of Republican Gov. Robert Bentley, who is seeking a second term.
