BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is facing eight challengers in Alabama’s Republican primary Tuesday, and the question is whether a hard swing to the right will help her avoid a runoff.

Ivey has repeated former President Donald Trump’s false claims about election theft in 2020, and she aired a commercial showing her pulling a pistol out of her purse.

But challengers including former Trump ambassador Lindy Blanchard and Tim James accuse her of not being conservative enough.

A runoff will be held on June 21 if no one gets at least 50% of the vote.

The eventual GOP nominee will face a longshot Democratic challenger in the general election.
