The once and future chairman

Joe Turnham won a second go-around as chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party on Saturday, picking up the support of 142 of the 170 executive committee members in attendance.

Turnham also revealed a pretty reasonable approach to the party's likely gubernatorial primary showdown between Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley and former Gov. Don Siegelman next year: "My goal is going to be to compete and to debate, but to heal quickly and to do it in ways that it doesn't rupture the fabric of the party."
