Jeana Ross wins HD27 primary

Republican voters went to the polls in Marshall County on Tuesday to select their next state Representative. Jeana Ross won the special Republican primary runoff election in House District 27.

"Thank you to the voters in House District 27. It will be my honor to represent you in the Alabama Legislature," Ross said on social media.

The unofficial results show that Alan Miller received 1,411 votes, (46.69% of the vote) while Jeana Ross received 1,611 votes (53.31%).

Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl congratulated Ross on the victory.

"Jeana Ross has proven herself as a steadfast advocate for conservative Republican principles and a tireless advocate for the people of Marshall County," said Wahl. "Her unwavering commitment to supporting parental rights, protecting children from a socialist agenda, promoting economic opportunities, and standing for fiscal responsibility embodies the core values of our Party. As the nominee for House District 27, Jeana Ross will fight for the rights, freedoms, and liberties of the people of the district. Her track record of success and dedication to our conservative values make her the ideal person to fill this position in the Legislature. We are confident that Jeana will serve with integrity, passion, and determination, and we congratulate her on her victory today."

Ross served as Secretary of the Department of Early Childhood Education for Governors Robert Bentley (R) and Kay Ivey (R).

The seat in Alabama House District 27 became vacant when former State Representative Wes Kitchens (R-Arab) was elected to the Alabama Senate in January.

There is no Democrat candidate in this race so Ross is the apparent Representative -elect.

Ross was endorsed by Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth (R) and Speaker of the House Nathaniel Ledbetter (R-Rainsville).
