Our recommendations in Tuesday’s election

Over a period of seven days, beginning Oct. 26, THE DAILY explained why it recommends certain candidates and why it doesn't others in Tuesday's General Election.

We base these recommendations on personal interviews with candidates and from studying their records. Some of our choices were easy to decide; others were more difficult because of the caliber of both candidates competing for the offices.

Here is a review of the candidates we recommend:

Bob Riley for governor

Jim Folsom Jr. for lieutenant governor

John Tyson Jr. for attorney general

Sue Bell Cobb for chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court

Tom Woodall for Place 2 on the Alabama Supreme Court

Albert L. "Al" Johnson for Place 3 on the Alabama Supreme Court

Glenn Murdock for Place 4 on the Alabama Supreme Court

Ray Vaughan for Place 1 on the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals

Craig Pittman for Place 2 on the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals

Jim McFerrin for Place 3 on the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals

Aubrey Ford Jr. for Place 1 on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals

Kelli Wise for Place 2 on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals

Deborah Bell Paseur for Place 3 on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals

Nancy Worley for secretary of state

Kay Ivey for state treasurer

S. Samantha "Sam" Shaw for state auditor

Ron Sparks for commissioner of agriculture and industries

Jan Cook for Place 1 on the Alabama Public Service Commission

Susan Parker for Place 2 on the Alabama Public Service Commission

Robert Aderholt for United States representative from the 4th Congressional District

We also recommend voting YES on proposed constitutional Amendment No. 2, and not voting on Amendments 1 and 3 because they pertain only to Macon County and the city of Prichard.
