Zeigler: It is no longer about right versus left, but right versus wrong

State Auditor Jim Zeigler.

State Auditor Jim Zeigler (R) told a packed house in Huntsville on Saturday that voters can send a message to politicians in Montgomery and Washington November 6.

“This is not just a choice between right and left. It is now a choice between right and wrong,” Zeigler said.

Zeigler was speaking to the Madison County Republican Men’s Club monthly breakfast meeting.

Zeigler said he would cast his vote “in less than 30 seconds. I will mark the straight Republican ticket, and then vote yes on the four statewide amendments.”

“This is a choice between mobs and jobs,” Zeigler said. “This is a choice between those who want to make American great again and those who want to tear America down.”

Zeigler said that the polls and enthusiasm are looking so good for statewide Republican candidates.

“Democrats will do what they do best: go negative against our candidates,” Auditor Zeigler said. “Expect it over the next two weeks, our opponents will drop atomic bombs on Gov. Kay Ivey, Tom Parker, Attorney General Steve Marshall, and me.”

“You know the answer to false allegatons: they are desperation tactics,” Zeigler continued. “I expect they will have less substance than the Kavanaugh allegations, and those were bogus.”

Zeigler is running for re-election to a second term as state auditor.
Jim Zeigler is a retired eldercare attorney from Mobile. He is a former Public Service Commissioner. As auditor he has focused on exposing waste and corruption and filed the original ethics complaint against Governor Robert Bentley (R) that eventually led to Bentley’s resignation. Zeigler also opposed taking the portraits of Governors George and Lurleen Wallace from the Capitol rotunda and Bentley’s decision to take the Confederate flags down from the Confederate Veterans Memorial.

Bentley faces Democratic nominee Miranda Karrine Joseph. Joseph was also the Democratic nominee for state auditor in 2014 and 2010.

The state auditor’s office is responsible for performing state property inventories.

Today, October 22 is the last day to register to vote in the November 6 general election. You can register by mail, at your local board of registrar’s office, or online at the Secretary of State’s website.

The bill will likely look very similar to the previous language, which fell just short of being considered by the full Senate at the...


Whether increases in voter registration, particularly among women, and rising polling numbers for Democrats affect Alabama remains to be seen.


Blake said he is tired of "squishy Republicans" who talk about limited government but never follow through.


We just need more people to tout the good things Alabama has to offer.
