Some Alabama's House seats are up for grabs

6 of Alabama's seven U.S. House members have major-party opposition on Tuesday, but challengers face an uphill road to victory.

All six incumbents had major funding advantages over their opponents. Without sizeable campaign accounts, challengers had the tough path of relying on free social media and one-on-one campaigning to build support against better-known officeholders.

Some members of the state's congressional delegation spent part of the election season outside Alabama campaigning for their party's presidential candidate.

Republican representatives up for re-election include Martha Roby of Montgomery; Mike Rogers of Saks; Robert Aderholt of Haleyville; Mo Brooks of Huntsville and Spencer Bachus of Vestavia Hills. Alabama's lone Democratic member of Congress, Rep. Terri Sewell of Birmingham, also has opposition.

Republican Rep. Jo Bonner of Mobile is unopposed by a Democrat.
