Prattville City Councilman defeated Millbrook businessman Harris Garner for the GOP nomination to represent Senate District 30 on Tuesday. Garner got more votes than Chambliss in Elmore County but did not prevail in the other counties in the district.
Chambliss will now face one more challenger, Bryan Morgan, an independent (non-partisan) candidate, in the general election in November.
Secretary of State Jim Bennett, the chief elections officer for the state, reported 8% of the state's registered voters turned out for the runoff election, slightly more than the 5% he predicted. Bennett said that the heated Senate District 30 race likely contributed to the higher turnout. The number of voters in Millbrook was much higher than many predicted. In the runoff election 1,823 votes were cast in Millbrook, which is approximately 88% of the primary election total.
