Darby Wants to Replace Baxley

By Associated Press

Montgomery, AL – A former Democratic candidate for attorney general, who denies the Holocaust, wants Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley to let him take her place as the party's nominee for governor. Larry Darby made the request in an October second letter to state party leadership. The letter, obtained by the Montgomery Advertiser, says Baxley does not have -- quote - a discernible or meaningful platform. Jim Spearman, executive director of the party, said the party plans to keep Baxley as its nominee to face off against Republican Governor Bob Riley on November seventh. Darby was defeated in the June sixth primary for attorney general.
