Former state Attorney General Troy King (R) just released the results of his open seat 2nd District poll in the battle to succeed retiring Rep. Martha Roby (R-Montgomery). Mr. King’s internal Tarrance Group survey (released 10/7; 303 AL-2 likely Republican primary voters) gives Mr. King a large lead, 34-18-17%, over former state Representative and 2018 congressional candidate Barry Moore and state Rep. Will Dismukes (R-Prattville). No other candidate even reaches double digits. Considering that Mr. King is a prominent former statewide office holder, the results are not particularly surprising.
The Republican nomination contest will decide who wins the seat in November because the district is safely in the GOP column. Alabama is one of the states that moved its primary to run concurrently with the March 3rd Super Tuesday presidential primary, so the candidates are operating in a relatively short election cycle. If no candidate receives majority support, likely in a multi-candidate field, a run-off will be held on April 14th.
