GOP runoff in north Alabama House seat

CULLMAN, AL (AP) -

The former director of the Cullman County Commission on Aging, Randall Shedd, and former Cullman County school board member Danny Alldredge will meet in a runoff March 26 for the Republican nomination for Alabama House District 11.

Unofficial results released by the state Republican Party show that Shedd received 47% of the vote and Alldredge nearly 28% in a four-candidate primary Tuesday. The winner of the runoff will meet Democrat Kelly Evans in the general election May 7.

District 11 includes Cullman, Blount and Morgan counties.

Gov. Robert Bentley scheduled the special election to fill a vacancy created when he appointed the incumbent, Republican Jeremy Oden, to the state Public Service Commission.
