Hearing on Friday over Bentley lawsuit

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A court hearing will be held Friday over that lawsuit seeking to pull Robert Bentley's name off Tuesday's ballot. Is it a political stunt or a real assault on the campaign?

Former Birmingham City Councilman Jimmy Blake claims Bentley, the Republican nominee for governor, failed to disclose help from the Alabama Education Association in his runoff campaign with Bradley Byrne.

A judge will hear arguments calling for a temporary injunction. Blake wants the election postponed, Bentley's name taken off the ballot and he does not want to see Bentley certified if he does win..

Secretary of State Beth Chapman announced the election would not be delayed.
