MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is marking the first year of her administration after suddenly being thrust into office when Gov. Robert Bentley stepped down after allegations emerged that he had an affair with a former aide.

Ivey was serving as lieutenant governor when she was sworn in as governor on April 10, 2017. In an interview with The Associated Press, Ivey discussed the major events, and controversies, of her first year in office.

Ivey, now seeking to win the office in her own right, faces a number of challengers in the 2018 elections.
