Democrat Keahey Wins Alabama Senate Seat

June 3, 2009

Democrat Marc Keahey appeared to be the winner of the Alabama Senate District 22 race in eight South Alabama counties Tuesday.

Unofficial returns Tuesday night shows Keahey, 28 about 2,500 votes ahead of Republican challenger Greg Albritton, 57.

Keahey, a Grove Hill attorney, currently serves in the Alabama House of Representatives. Albritton is a former state representative from Range.

Albritton was the top vote getter in Escambia, Monroe, Baldwin and Conecuh counties — the area he represented while he was in the Alabama House from 2003 to 2007. In Escambia County, Albritton received over 500 more votes than Keahey.

TheĀ  District 22 Alabama Senate seat left vacant early this year by the death of Sen. Pat Lindsey.
