Hubbard Says He's Not Running For Governor In 2014


Republican House Speaker Mike Hubbard of Auburn says he won't run for governor in 2014.

Hubbard says that he has a great relationship with Republican Gov. Robert Bentley and won't run against him.

Hubbard said he has enjoyed his first term as speaker of the House and would like to serve a second four-year term when the House elects a new speaker following the 2014 legislative elections.

Hubbard said he might consider a race for governor in 2018.

Hubbard is currently promoting his book, "Storming the Statehouse." It's about the Republican takeover of the Legislature in the 2010 elections, when Hubbard was chairman of the Alabama Republican Party.
