Riley wins

No surprise. Looks like there was a “hidden” Roy Moore vote, but only enough to cut the lead from forty to thirty percent. The only other race that has been called statewide is Artur Davis’, who is running with over 90 percent.

Larry Darby is running with 45.53 percent of the vote in the Democratic AG primary. Nearly 65,000 Alabamians have voted for a Holocaust denier. I would be more worried if I thought more of them knew. On the other side, “Troy King” is winning with an even bigger margin than his boss despite being manifestly unqualified even after a couple years on the job.
