James: top two candidate

When asked how he was doing in a crowded field of six Republicans, Tim James said on Tuesday that he was one of the top two Republican candidates for governor.
He said he was clobbered in 2002, but it was the "wrong race at the wrong time." He finished third in the Republican primary in 2002.
"Timing is everything," James said.
The Greenville businessman was the first candidate to enter the 2010 race for governor. He immediately assembled an experienced staff and began to seek support from throughout the state. Supporters include former U.S. Rep. Sonny Callahan of Mobile and U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt of Haleyville, who are hosting a fundraiser for him this week.
James said he will set himself apart with his common-sense message and with his business experience.
He is touting that he is the only businessman in the race, which he said would help during the "most frightening time in 70 years."
