Republican nominee Robert Bentley made the pledge Tuesday night after winning the nomination over Bradley Byrne.

Democratic nominee Ron Sparks made the pledge at a news conference Wednesday.

Sparks said Alabama deserves a clean campaign, run on the issues, because the state is facing so many problems, including the Gulf oil spill and high unemployment.

Both candidates agree on one thing. They say the winner of the general election Nov. 2 will be the candidate who has the best plan to create jobs.

    Bentley never went negative through this primary campaign. I feel like he'll stay very positive because that's what won him the nomination. Sparks is the decided underdog in this general election race and it will be interesting to see if he goes negative at any point. Sparks is a formidable campaigner and will not be outworked. It will be an entertaining race. These are two very different candidates as far as their vision for Alabama is concerned, so the voters need to pay attention and get involved.

    Yeah, sure they will. We'll see how long this lasts. I don't give it a week.
