MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The election for Montgomery mayor is headed to a runoff.
News outlets report that Probate Judge Steven Reed and businessman David Woods will face each other in an October runoff. The two were the top finishers in a crowded field in Tuesday's election.
Reed is the probate judge of Montgomery County. Woods is a businessman and owns WCOV-TV.
Reed received about 42 percent and Woods received 24 percent.
A runoff is required because no single candidate garnered more than 50 percent of the vote Tuesday night.
