Appeal Dismissed in Jefferson Co. Commission Race
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Democratic Executive Committee has dismissed an appeal to challenge the results of a contested Jefferson County Commission primary runoff.
Al.com reports the appeal of results in the District 2 primary runoff race was dismissed during a meeting Tuesday.
Candidate Sandra Little Brown beat challenger Shelia Smoot by 26 votes in the primary runoff but the results were challenged by a Smoot supporter who questioned election processes.
Smoot has said she wouldn't concede because there were still questions over elections processes. Brown, her attorney Joe Espy and county Probate Court Judge Alan King have said the election was fair and impartial.
