Gov. Kay Ivey’s campaign for a full term has released its first video, “My Sweet Home, Alabama,” highlighting Ivey’s roots, faith and family.

The video, released yesterday, is tracked by Ivey, who describes her hometown of Camden, her family and what she learned growing up in small town Alabama.

“Growing up in a small town like Camden you just grow up helping one another and your neighbors mean the world to you,” Ivey said. “It taught me what was right and what was wrong and you always strive to do what’s right.”

Ivey formally launched her campaign earlier this month, and in the short time that she has been fundraising, she has raised over $1.2 million, outpacing her competitors.
