Bradley Byrne , until recently the chancellor of Alabama’s two-year college system, announced Wednesday he is running for the 2010 Republican nomination for governor.

The 54-year-old Byrne resigned from his post as chancellor earlier this month, signaling his intention to run. In his candidacy announcement, he said he would make education, ethics and economic development priorities if he were to win the race to succeed term-limited Alabama Republican Gov. Bob Riley .  

“We have made great strides in cleaning out the corruption of the two-year college system,” Byrne proclaimed in his prepared remarks.'”And now, I will take our fight for reform to the next level.”
