Coleman, Moore to meet in GOP District 2 House runoff


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Jeff Coleman and Barry Moore will meet in a runoff for the Republican nomination in the District 2 U.S. House race in southeast Alabama.

Moore claimed the second runoff spot Wednesday as returns showed him leading third-place finisher Jessica Taylor by fewer than 600 of the more than 104,000 votes that were cast Tuesday. Taylor issued a statement congratulating Moore on his strong finish.

The eventual winner will face Democrat Phyllis Harvey-Hall in November. The seat is currently held by Republican Rep. Martha Roby, who isn't seeking reelection.
