These results are Lee County results and have not been certified as of press time. Absentee and provisional ballots were not included in these results.
Jeremy Gray, Richard LaGrand, Randy Price, Tom Whatley and Debbie Wood emerged victorious in their respective races during last night’s general midterm elections.
Gray, an Opelika native and Democratic nominee in House District 83, received enough votes to defeat Republican challenger Michael J. Holden II by a 58.7 – 40.9 percentage-point margin.
“I know that God has bigger plans for my life and me coming back to alabama, starting a business, starting a nonprofit, now being your state representative means so much more to me than being famous (as a football player),” Gray said.
After defeating Bishop A.L. Dowdell in the July 17 Lee County runoff elections, LaGrand soundly defeated incumbent John Andrew Harris in the Lee County Commission District 5 race with a 81.4 – 18.6 percentage-point margin. Harris staged a write-in campaign in an effort to retain his county commission seat.
Following the closest election victory in Alabama in this year’s election cycle during a runoff campaign against Todd Rauch, Republican Debbie Wood dominated Democrat Brian McGee in the Alabama House District 38 race. She received 73.4 percent of the vote to McGee’s 26.4 percent.
Price cruised to an easy victory in the Alabama Senate District 13 race over Democratic opponent Darrell Turner. He carried 70.3 percent of the vote to Turner’s 29.6 percent.
