Very tight in Supreme Court race

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is fighting to gain a small number of votes that would put him over the top of the 50% mark. A winner was not proclaimed overnight because ballots being counted by hand in Mobile County were still under way.

Moore, who was removed from the state's high court, held 50% of the vote with 98% of precincts reporting. His fellow GOP opponents, Charlie Graddick and incumbent Chuck Malone hold just 25% of the votes.

Moore needs a small number of ballots to win the primary outright. Graddick and Malone need just a few votes to force a special election with Moore. 

Additional information may come in the morning hours.
