State Dems appoint committee to hear Hale County appeal
The Tuscaloosa News reports: Almost two months after the party's runoff election, the Democratic nominee remains unknown after an election challenge.
Arthur Crawford of Sawyerville defeated three-term incumbent Leland Avery by 80 votes in the April 24 Democratic runoff. After the vote was certified, a citizen filed a challenge, claiming Crawford failed to comply with the new Alabama campaign financial disclosure laws.
A subcommittee appointed by the Hale County Democratic Party met on May 25 and upheld the challenge, voting 3-2 to disqualify Crawford as the party's nominee. Crawford then appealed the decision to the state party.
Bradley Davidson, the state party's executive director, said the state Democratic executive committee has appointed a five-member subcommittee to hear the appeal. -- Read the whole story --> Dems will meet to settle Hale probate judge issue | TuscaloosaNews.com
