Two Republicans appear to be headed to the Alabama State House of Representatives following special elections.
Republican David Standridge, of Hayden, won district 34 on Tuesday with nearly 55 percent of the vote. His Republican opponent Chris Latta, of Oneonta, received 45 percent. Alabama Republican Party Executive Director Timothy James Maloney said there was no Democratic contender. The district covers most of Blount County and part of Jefferson County.
Republican Mack Butler, of Rainbow City, won district 30 with 53 percent of the vote, compared to nearly 47 percent for Democrat Beth McGlaughn, of Southside. The district covers Etowah and St. Clair counties.
Maloney says results are unofficial. He expects final results to be tabulated in the next three days.
