GOP chairman disappointed Bentley not supportive


Armistead said he is running on his record of helping the party sweep the last Democrat out of statewide office in November and winning offices in counties that have traditionally voted Democrat.

Armistead, a former state senator and former GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, got elected two years ago by defeating state Rep. Jay Love of Montgomery, who was backed by Hubbard.

Armistead ran against Ivey earlier this year for the chairmanship of Alabama's delegation to the Republican National Convention. Ivey, who led Mitt Romney's campaigns in Alabama in 2008 and 2012, defeated Armistead for that post.
