Riley's policy director steps down to run for Senate

Gov. Bob Riley's policy director, Bryan Taylor, resigned on Thursday and will formally announce on Monday that he is running for the state Senate.
He will face fellow Republicans Ray Boles and Ken Barnett in the Republican primary. The winner will meet longtime state Sen. Wendell Mitchell, D-Luverne, in the November general election.
Taylor helped shape the administration's stance on electronic bingo.
He decided to run "after seeing yet another session of backroom deals and broken promises from Senate Democrats."
"It is a difficult decision to leave Governor Riley's administration," Taylor said. "But I felt absolutely compelled to run so that District 30, my district, would have a conservative vote in the Senate for the first time."
