GOP Controls Alabama Legislature
Republicans have strengthened their grip on the Alabama Statehouse. The GOP, which already held a supermajority in Montgomery, picked up additional seats in Tuesday's election. Republicans defeated several Democratic incumbents and will hold 72 of 105 seats in the House of Representatives, according to unofficial returns. Senate Republicans won two open seats formerly held by Democrats and will hold at least 2. Republican House Speaker Mike Hubbard won re-election despite his indictment on multiple felony ethics charges.
