Democrat Scott Ninesling seeks Ala. lt. governor


Ivey said voters wanted a change in the status quo in 2010 and she has delivered.

"Since being sworn in, I have presided over some of the most productive sessions of the Alabama Senate in our state's history and look forward to running on those accomplishments: service to our state, bringing jobs to our state and standing up for the right of our people against the overreach of the federal government," she said.

Ninesling has not yet filed any campaign organization papers with the secretary of state. Ninesling said he got home from his overseas job on Friday and plans to take care of the paperwork this week.

The lieutenant governor's compensation varies from year to year depending on whether the Legislature has special sessions, but it was $70,842 in fiscal year 2012. Ninesling said that if he wins, the compensation would be less than he makes now, but the position would be worth it.

The general election is set for Nov. 4, 2014.
