A grand report has become an indispensable tool for journalists covering Alabama politics.
It’s a comprehensive summary of the state’s history, and it’s the best way to gauge the state of a political race.
The state’s election commission has been reviewing the report for years, and its final draft will be released later this month.
But this is the first time a grand-report has been used to score a Republican Senate candidate.
“It’s the only way to get a good picture of what the state looks like, and the last thing we want is to do a bad job,” said Republican state Rep. Jody Hice.
“So the grand-reports are a great way to do that.”
The report was created by the Alabama Commission on Ethics in 2017, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that lawmakers have the right to use taxpayer funds to pay for their own campaign.
Alabama used $2.9 million of the commission’s $5.3 million budget to pay its congressional candidates in 2017.
It is the only state that has spent the money on its own candidates.
Hice said the commission, which has about 200 members and has the backing of the Republican Party of Alabama, has no problem with the use of the report.
But it’s important to note that the commission has not given the report to the Republican candidate.
Alabama is a “winner take all” state, meaning the GOP candidate wins the election regardless of how the state votes, Hice told The Verge.
“There’s a lot of different ways you could get to that conclusion, but the Republican party of Alabama is going to have to look at the report and decide whether they want to spend the money or not.”
The commission released a short, preliminary summary of its report last year, which did not include a candidate’s name.
But the Alabama Press Association, which represents reporters covering the state, said it’s still trying to get the full report.
“The final report, which we’re currently working on, will be more than 200 pages long,” wrote Jennifer Haskins, the APA’s communications director, in an email.
“But the summary is only available to members of the public, and only for Alabama voters, so we hope the full document is available to the public.”
The APA also said it is reviewing a request for a full report from the Alabama Republican Party to have the full version.
It said it will release a draft of the final report to both parties at the same time, but it will also be releasing the final version publicly at a later date.
“Our hope is that the public can access the full summary of our analysis of the 2018 Alabama election,” Haskers wrote.
“We are committed to making it as complete and accurate as possible, but we have a long way to go in terms of getting the full public release.”
