Armistead Congratulates David Standridge and Chris Latta for Making it into the House District 34 Runoff

Staff Report

From the Office of Chairman Bill Armistead, Alabama GOP 

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – On Tuesday, voters in parts of Blount and Jefferson Counties voted in the special election primary race for House District 34. The seat was vacated by Thomas Elwyn (R-Oneonta) after he accepted Governor Robert Bentley’s appointment as Executive Director of the Alabama Manufactured Housing Commission.

Blount County Probate Judge David Standridge received 35.7 percent of the vote and Chris Latta, a banker in Oneonta, received 22.1 percent of the vote. No candidate received 50 percent of the vote, therefore Standridge and Latta will face each other in a special primary runoff election on Tuesday, December 11th.

“We had six great candidates in this election and now we’re down to only two,” said Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. “Either of these candidates will be a solid conservative Republican vote in Montgomery and a true servant to their constituents. I look forward to working with either of them  as Republicans in Montgomery continue to focus on job creation and right-sizing government.”

Since no Democrat qualified for this race, the winner of the December 11th special primary runoff election will be the new representative for House District 34.
