Sparks to run for governor

Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks announced Friday morning he will be a candidate for governor in 2010.
The Democrat, who cannot run for a third consecutive term as commissioner, talked about economic development, keeping children in school, keeping jobs from going overseas, fair trade, and promoting agriculture.
"I have a vision for this state. I have a vision that can lead Alabama into the future," he said on the steps of the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, D-Birmingham, is the only other Democrat to announce he is running.
