Campaign 2022: Who’s in a Runoff, Who Moves on to November
Here is a look at which candidates have been forced into a runoff and which ones are moving ahead to the November general election.
Runoffs are needed if no candidate gets a majority of the votes in their race on primary day. The top two finishers will face off on runoff day, Tuesday, June 21.
Otherwise the top finishing Democrat and the top finishing Republican will advance to the general election in November.
Gov. Kay Ivey won the Republican primary, beating eight challengers as she seeks a second full term. She will meet either Yolanda Flowers or Malika Sanders-Fortier, who are heading to a Democratic Party runoff.
