MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — State Rep. Wes Allen won the Republican nomination for Alabama Secretary of State, according to the Associated Press.

Allen beat his opponent State Auditor Jim Zeigler Tuesday, June 21. Zeigler congratulated Allen on his win and told WKRG News 5 that he would like to work for his former competitor’s campaign. 

“I endorse Wes Allen for the general election and will work for his election,” said Zeigler. “I thank the hundreds of citizens that supported me and worked for me. I could have not gotten into the runoff without their help.”
