Republican Phil Williams won the Alabama state House of Representatives race I mentioned yesterday. From the Huntsville Times:

For the second time this summer the voters of Madison County chose to send a Republican lawmaker to Montgomery to replace a Democrat.

Republican Phil Williams on Tuesday won with 2,547 votes or 60 percent of the total cast in a special election for state House District 6, which includes west Huntsville, Toney and parts of Hazel Green.

Democratic candidate Jenny Askins received 1,660 votes or 39 percent of the total. There were also 22 write-in votes.
