4 candidates qualify for Ala. Senate 22 election

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Three Republicans and one Democrat have met the deadline to qualify for a special election to replace the late state Sen. Pat Lindsey of Butler in Senate District 22.

The Democratic Party announced that state Rep. Marc Keahey of Grove Hill was the lone Democrat to sign up.

The Republican Party said its candidates are Brewton businessman Danny Joyner, former state Rep. Greg Albritton of Range, and Citronelle businesswoman Judy Belk.

Belk has run twice for Congress as a Democrat, but decided to switch parties.

The primary election will be April 14. Lindsey died Jan. 11 of an apparent heart attack.

District 22 in southwest Alabama includes all of Escambia and Washington counties and parts of Baldwin, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Mobile and Monroe counties.
