There have been winners declared in two more special elections in Alabama. This has been the season for such elections in our state.
Elaine Beech Wins House Seat
Democrat Elaine Beech has won the special election for the open seat in Alabama House of Representatives District 65. The newly-elected House member, a Chatom pharmacist, received 53% of the votes in the race. Her Republican opponent, Jerry Reed, received 47%. Ms. Beech, who currently serves on the Washington County school board, will give up her seat on that board.
Lawrence McAdory Wins Runoff
Lawrence McAdory, who served previously in the House of Representatives, will return to the Legislature after beating out political newcomer Claire Mitchell in a runoff election for the vacant seat in House District 56. No Republicans ran for the seat, so this one is decided.
