Republican Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey is half-way toward her goal of winning a second term.     

Ivey won the Republican nomination Tuesday night by defeating Kimberly minister Stan Cooke. 

With 66 percent of precincts reporting, Ivey has 61 percent of the vote to Cooke's 39 percent, according to unofficial returns.     

Ivey meets the Democratic nominee, former state Rep. James Fields, in the general election Nov. 4.
