State Rep. John Knight, D-Montgomery, and Montgomery City Councilman David Burkette received the most votes in the special Democratic Primary in Montgomery County’s state Senate District 26 special election.
The two will face off in a runoff to fill the District 26 seat vacated by Quinton Ross after he became the president of Alabama State University.
“Words cannot express how thankful I am. I appreciate all of your support. This journey is not over yet. I led the primary and with your help I will be elected your next Alabama Senator District 26!” Knight on social media.
