“A move­ment has been grow­ing over re­cent weeks to per­suade Troy Uni­versity Chan­cel­lor Jack Hawkins Jr. to make a gubernat­ori­al run in 2018.

“Carl Cole, a 1997 Troy Alum­nus, helped to spark the con­ver­sa­tion by cre­at­ing the Face­book page ‘Re­cruit Jack Hawkins for Gov­ernor.’”

“Hawkins said he’s aware of the page but has made no de­cisions about run­ning for polit­ic­al of­fice at this time.”

Hawkins: “I’m humbled and flattered that these cit­izens con­sider me a worthy can­did­ate. … For now, my fo­cus re­mains fully on Troy Uni­versity.” (Troy Mes­sen­ger)

BENT(LEY) OUT OF SHAPE. “[T]he Alabama House Eth­ics and Cam­paign Fin­ance Com­mit­tee will con­vene Tues­day morn­ing to dis­cuss mov­ing for­ward with pos­sible at­tempts to re­move” Gov. Robert Bent­ley (R). “In Alabama, art­icles of im­peach­ment must be brought for­ward by the state House of Rep­res­ent­at­ives, while the state Sen­ate acts as jury.” (CNN)
