Trent Kelly Wins Special Election for 1st District

Trent Kelly was declared the winner of the Special Election for
the First Congressional District on Tuesday night. The AP called the race for Kelly very soon after the polls closed. Kelly defeated Walter Howard Zinn, Jr. with 70% of the vote district-wide.

In Winston County the race was slightly tighter, however Kelly carried the county easily as he received 1858 votes to Zinn's 1178. 23.6% of registered voters in Winston County cast a ballot on Tuesday. Kelly will finish the term of First District Congressman Alan Nunnelee, who passed away earlier this year.
