(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Democrat James C. Fields Junior won his party's nomination for the Alabama House District 12 seat on Tuesday. The Republican nomination will be decided by a runoff between Bill Floyd and Wayne Willingham.

The District 12 seat was vacated when Rep. Neal Morrison, a Cullman Democrat, resigned on August 31st to become interim president of Bevill State Community College.

With all boxes reporting, Fields had 1,375 votes, or about 63 percent, in the Democratic primary. In the Republican primary, Floyd had 661 votes and Willingham had 655, giving each about 29 percent of the vote, The Cullman Times reported on its Web site.

The Republican primary runoff will be December 18th and the general election January 29th, a week before the 2008 regular session of the Legislature begins on February 5th.
