Alabama GOP chairman calls AG's opinion 'crazy'

The chairman of Alabama's Republican Party calls Attorney General Troy King's opinion on the GOP recount "crazy."

Mike Hubbard says the party was prepared to conduct the recount sought by third-place finisher Tim James until King issued his opinion. The opinion says the top two candidates - Bradley Byrne and Robert Bentley - go on the runoff ballot July 13. Then James could use a recount to contest the results.

Hubbard questions why the party would want to go through a recount if it couldn't be used until after the runoff. He said that could put the party in a position of taking the nomination away from someone, and the party wants to avoid that.
