Alabama Candidate Campaigns on Cleavage

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party's write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters will eventually focus on her platform.

"It started out as a joke, but it blew up into something huge," said Nall, a 32-year-old with dyed blond hair.

Her campaign is offering T-shirts and marijuana stash boxes adorned with a photo of her with a plunging neckline and the words: "More of these boobs." Below that are pictures of other candidates for governor - including Republican incumbent Bob Riley and Democratic Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley - and the words: "And less of these boobs."

Nall, who spoke in an interview Friday on the Capitol steps, realizes that is about as close as she is going to get to the governor's office. But her outrageous antics have helped her attract attention not normally enjoyed by write-in candidates.

She would definitely get my vote! I'm kind of cheap and easy at times.

Whatever your cheap and tawdry motives, the important point are that you are keeping a breast of what's on the political front.
