    GOP Secretary of State Beth Chapman was already term limited and she's decided to leave early for a job in the private sector.  Apparently her name was thrown around to primary Governor Bentley but she's making it clear that won't happen.

    Republican Gov. Robert Bentley will appoint someone to fill out Chapman's term. Before her announcement, three Republicans were already running for the job in the 2014 election: Rep. John Merrill of Tuscaloosa, Crenshaw County Probate Judge Jim Perdue and former Montgomery County Probate Judge Reese McKinney. No Democrats have announced.

    23, male, CA-18 (home and voting there), LA-01 (college).
