AL.com reports: Chris McNeil, a businessman who hopes to run for state representative in District 102 in northern and western Mobile County, faces a challenge based on residency. His house is on the south side of Howells Ferry Road, which is the dividing line between Districts 102 and 101.
McNeil has argued that his candidacy is legal because his property extends 1 inch into District 102.
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead ... said the party could declare McNeil ineligible if he were to win. But he said he is unsure if the party simply would go with the second-place finisher or require a separate vote. He also said he does not know if the party would require a runoff if one of the other two candidates wins but does not get a majority of the votes. -- Alabama GOP sets Friday hearing to consider challenge to Mobile legislative candidate | AL.com
