Stacy George announces his run for governor.

Former Alabama gubernatorial candidate Stacy George is once again in the running. George made the announcement on Thursday, according to ABC 32

George, a state correctional officer, first unsuccessfully challenged former Gov. Robert Bentley in the Republican primary in 2014. 

George ran again in 2017, against Gov, Kay Ivey, but dropped out of the race in November of that year and threw his support behind Ivey. 

In 2000, George was elected to the Morgan County Commission, and was re-elected in 2004. He had another political loss in 2006, in a failed run for sheriff, and again in 2008, when he was beaten in the Republican primary for a seat on the Morgan County Commission. 

George in 2010 switched parties and ran again for the Morgan County Commission as a Democrat, then switched back to the GOP in 2012 to run as a delegate to the RNC.
