Special Election is Heating Up

Tuesday, August 8, 2017


The special election for Jeff Sessions’ senate seat is heating up, but voter turnout isn’t expected to be very high. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says he projects 20-25% of voters will go to the polls for the primary election on August 15th. He says a typical primary has a 30-32% turnout. Governor Bentley appointed Luther Strange to the seat, and he faces Republican challengers Roy Moore, Mo Brooks, Trip Pittman, and Randy Brinson. If none of those candidates gets 50% of the votes, the top two candidates will face off in a runoff on September 26th.
