Nall campaign building steam

Loretta Nall is destined to become the media darling in the Alabama gubernatorial campaign. Her recent press conference was well covered by the local outlets, including radio and TV. And the Montgomery Advertiser wrote an reasonably good piece, although they just had to mention Loretta's pending case for possession of less than a gram of marijuana, that by the way was planted by the police when they raided her home with a SWAT team and helicopter. Not that they mention that part.

I guess you can't blame the press for it. Drug reform does define her persona to a great extent since her political experience rests largely on reform activism and the bust makes a good hook for them. Anyway, there's no such thing as bad press unless they spell your name wrong.
