George Wallace Jr. running for treasurer

After an absence from politics, George Wallace Jr. has decided to run for another term as state treasurer, according to the Associated Press.
Wallace told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he decided to run for treasurer in 2010 as a Republican.
He said he wants to return to the office to help with the state's prepaid college tuition plan, which is administered by the state treasurer. Wallace started the prepaid college tuition plan during the first of his two terms as state treasurer.
Wallace said he was leaving politics in 2006 after he lost a runoff in the Republican primary for lieutenant governor to Luther Strange, who is running for attorney general in 2010.
Other candidates who have announced they are running for treasurer include Republican Terry Dunn and Democrat Jeremy Sherer.
Current Treasurer Kay Ivey, a Republican, cannot run for a third consecutive term and is running for governor.
