MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The second-place finisher in the
Republican runoff, Bradley Byrne, says he has nothing to do with a
campaign urging people to write-in his name for governor.

Byrne spoke out Friday after an Internet campaign was launched
to write in his name in Tuesday's election. Byrne says will be
voting for Republican nominee Robert Bentley, and he's encouraging
everyone who supported him in the Republican primary to do the
same.

Byrne and state Republican Party officials said the write-in
effort appears to be run by an employee of Democratic nominee Ron
Sparks. Sparks' spokesman Taylor Bright said they had nothing to do
with it and he accused the Bentley campaign of dirty tricks.
