Roy Moore and Luther Strange will head to a Sept. 26, GOP primary runoff in the Special Election for US Senate. Former US Attorney Doug Jones will await the winner in the Dec. 12, General Election.
With just all 67 of Alabama’s counties reporting, Moore was the top vote-getter on Tuesday in the GOP, raking in 38.90 percent of the votes but falling short of the 50-percent threshold needed to win outright. Strange picked up just over 32 percent, nearly doubling third-place Mo Brooks, who had just 19.7 percent.
Jones, in the meantime, was, as expected, an easy winner, grabbing nearly 66 percent of the early vote.
