Republicans Announce Special Election Candidates

By Brandon Moseley

Monday was the final day for qualifying for major party candidate in the Special Election for Alabama House Districts 74. Qualifying in House District 104 will end on Monday, August 26th no later than 5:00 pm.

The Alabama Republican Party announced that three candidates have filed to run in House District 74. The three Republicans running for the seat are: Charlotte Meadows, Heather Sellers, and Dimitri Polizos.

The ALGOP announced that the candidates qualifying for HD 104 (to this point) are: Nathan Davis, Charlie Plyler, Margie Wilcox, Susan Hightower, and Ralph Carmichael. Hightower is the wife of State Senator Bill Hightower (R).

House Districts 74 and 104 both become vacant when incumbents Jay Love (R) from Prattville and Jim Barton (R) from Mobile resigned to pursue new career opportunities.

As of press time we are still uncertain as to what Democratic candidates (if any) have qualified for either Alabama House seat. We emailed a request for information to the Alabama Democratic Party; but their email address is currently not working.

According to the latest version of Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) amended special election time lines major party candidates still have until 5:00 on Monday, August 26 to qualify in House District 104 in Mobile County. Major party qualifying ended at 5:00 on Monday, August 19th in House District 74.
