Political face off in Dallas County

MONTGOMERY, AL -  Democratic candidates for governor Artur Davis and Ron Sparks are drawing sharp differences on the issues of gambling and Alabama's constitution.

At news conferences Tuesday in Montgomery, Davis said he's the only candidate in the governor's race who favors a constitutional convention to rewrite Alabama's 1901 Constitution. Sparks says he favors doing it article by article in the Legislature.

Sparks says that if elected, he will call a special session immediately after the inauguration to get the Legislature to propose a constitutional amendment to tax, regulate and expand gambling. Davis says he favors a straight up or down referendum on whether voters want electronic bingo.
