Sparks win Demo nomination, Byrne in runoff
Montgomery, AL – MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A recount may determine who will be in
the Republican runoff for governor, but Bradley Byrne will be one
of the two.
With more than 99 percent of the precincts reporting, the former
two-year college chancellor made the runoff with 28 percent of
the vote Tuesday night. Tuscaloosa physician Robert Bentley had
25 percent, Greenville businessman Tim James 25.0 percent, and
former Chief Justice Roy Moore 19 percent.
It's still unclear if Bentley or James will be in the runoff.
Bentley called it a nerve-racking evening. James says it appears
a recount will be needed to determine who will be the second
candidate in a runoff on July 13.
The Democratic race has already been decided, with Agriculture
Commissioner Ron Sparks defeating Congressman Artur Davis.
