MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -

The Republican primary in the 1st Congressional District is headed to a runoff Nov. 5 between former two-year college chancellor Bradley Byrne and Orange Beach businessman Dean Young.     

With more than three-fifth of the precincts reporting Tuesday night, unofficial returns show Byrne had 33 percent, followed by Young with 25 percent.

State Rep. Chad Fincher was third with 15 percent. Conservative columnist Quin Hillyer was fourth with 13 percent, followed by former Republican National Committee staffer Wells Griffith with 12 percent.

Four other candidates had 2 percent combined.     

Real estate agent Burton Leflore won the Democratic primary over Lula Albert-Kaigler with about 70 percent of the vote. LeFlore advances to the general election Dec. 17.     

The seat representing southwest Alabama came open last month when Republican Jo Bonner resigned.
