Jefferson County voters elect Dunn to state Senate

State Rep. Priscilla Dunn defeated one of her colleagues in the Alabama House of Representatives on Tuesday to be Alabama's next state senator and to bring the Senate to 35 members for the first time this year.
Dunn defeated fellow Democratic Rep. Merika Coleman to replace former Sen. E.B. McClain, D-Midfield, who was ousted following an ethics conviction.
Dunn won the runoff and there is no Republican opponent.
Democrats, who operated three members short during the last legislative session, have won two special elections this year, but lost one seat in northern Alabama.
Dunn's victory in the Jefferson County district does create another vacancy in the Alabama House.
