Where is Governor Kay Ivey? Her office says she’s “fine”

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) – A number of media outlets are questioning Governor Kay Ivey’s health, saying her office has been unresponsive for weeks.

AL.com reporter Kyle Whitmire raised concerns for Ivey’s health Thursday in an op-ed column, saying he and other state reporters he spoke with “raise the same questions and come up against the same wall”.

Capital News 19 reporter Maddie Biertempfel contacted the governor’s office. Spokesperson Gina Maiola responded:

“When the news is slow in the summer, rumors run rampant in the capital. While I don’t want to give any credence to these false rumors, I want to be sure to clear things up and set the record straight. Governor Ivey is doing well and continues to thank God for keeping her healthy and cancer free. We look forward to her leading the state of Alabama for years to come.

– Gina Maiola, Director of Communications for Governor Ivey

Ivey was sworn in as Alabama’s 54th governor in April 2017. She won the primary election in May 2022 with more than 55% of the vote. There was a runoff for the Democratic candidate and Yolanda Flowers won the nomination.
