The Alabama gubernatorial race is heating up after Republican candidate Tim James released a controversial "We speak English" ad.

James vows that if he's elected, the Alabama state driver's license exam will be in English only, a cost-saving measure. He proclaims in the ad, "This is Alabama; we speak English. If you want to live here, learn it."

The political ad comes in response to a hot national debate over Arizona's new immigration law.

James says he believes "common sense" will win out over "political correctness."
