Republicans pick up state Senate seat in special election

Republican Paul Sanford defeated Democratic state Rep. Laura Hall in a special election in Madison County on Tuesday to become Alabama's next state senator.
Sanford will represent the district that was represented just months ago by Sen. Parker Griffith, a Huntsville Democrat who was elected to Congress in November. Republicans will now have an additional member when the Legislature convenes in January.
The Republican businessman easily won the District 7 seat.
The Alabama Republican Party worked hard and spent heavily to win two state Senate special elections, but lost the first and many expected Sanford to lose on Tuesday.
