Alabama heads into today's primary election with a huge stake in the presidential race. Three of the four candidates for president spent time in the state ahead of the primary, hoping Alabama will propel them to the GOP nomination. The polls close tonight at 7.
Remember, when you go to the polls you will need an acceptable form of voter I-D. It could be a utility bill, a paycheck, social security card or an Alabama license.
More evidence today our economy is improving. The State Department of Industrial Relations has announced January's unemployment figure is down to 7.8 percent. In December it was 8 percent.
But, not everything is improving. AAA reports the national average for a gallon of regular gas has jumped again in recent weeks. The new national average is $3.81 a gallon. In Alabama the current average is $3.60 a gallon. That's up a penny from yesterday.
Join us for these stories plus weather and sports tonight at five and six on WSFA 12 News.
See ya then,
