Interest Emerges for Top Democratic Spot

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – Alexander City attorney and former legislator Tom Radney says he's interested in being Alabama's next Democratic Party chair. So do former party chair Joe Turnham of Auburn, former party executive director Giles Perkins of Birmingham, and Montgomery attorney James Anderson. Current Democratic Party Chair Redding Pitt is planning to step down. The State Democratic Executive Committee will meet to select a new head to lead the party into the 2006 elections. Meanwhile, Huntsville attorney Buck Watson says he's received encouragement to seek the post, but he says he would rather remain an active supporter than hold a leadership position.
