Democrat Yolanda Flowers will face Republican Gov. Kay Ivey in the November general election.

“Alabama, we did it! Yolanda Flowers will officially be the Democratic nominee for governor of Alabama. Thank you so very much, God Bless and Let’s press toward November 8th as we Reconstruct Alabama, together!” Flowers posted on her Facebook page.
Flowers is a Birmingham native. She has spent many years working in schools in various roles.
