Greg Albritton takes GOP primary for Pat Lindsey’s seat

Greg Albritton won today’s GOP primary to face Democrat Marc Keahey for the Senate District 22 seat, according to unofficial returns.

The seat became vacant upon the death of state Sen. Pat Lindsey, D-Butler, in January.

Returns showed Albritton, a former state representative from Range, outdistancing rivals Judy Belk and Danny Joyner in all but one of the eight counties in the L-shaped district. The Alabama Republican Party reported Albritton had won approximately 57 percent of the vote in the district.
