MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Bill Johnson says several letters that he considers "death threats" have been mailed to his home in Prattville.

WSFA 12 News sat down with Johnson for an on-camera interview Wednesday. We'll air that interview on WSFA 12 News at 6:00.

Johnson said Tuesday he has turned over the letters to the Prattville Post Office and was told they would be investigated by postal inspectors.

One of the letters is addressed to "Judas Iscariot" and on the envelope includes a photo from the Vietnam War of a man holding a gun to another man's head. Johnson's face has been placed on the image of the man with the gun pointed at his head. Under the picture is the phrase "Say Goodbye To Bill."

Johnson is a former member of Gov. Bob Riley's cabinet and served on the Birmingham City Council.
