At this rate, it may not even be interesting

Gov. Bob Riley is stomping a mudhole in all of his challengers, according to recent polling by the (Mobile) Press-Register. In addition to the 44-point lead he's opened up over former Chief Justice Roy Moore in the Republican primary, Riley is well ahead of both major Democratic contenders, leading Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley by 16 points and former Gov. Don Siegelman by 33 points.

Poll director Keith Nicholls noted that Riley didn't quite cross the 50 percent threshold versus Baxley and that no one knows how Siegelman will fare until his impending federal corruption trial unfolds. But the results bode well for neither candidate, especially Siegelman, with party primaries about a month away.
