MADISON – Alabama voters chose Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the presidential race on Super Tuesday.

On March 1, dubbed ‘Super Tuesday,’ voters and delegates cast ballots and endorsed candidates at polls and caucuses in more than a dozen states. Super Tuesday decided approximately 50 percent of delegates required for the Republican nominee and about 33 percent for the Democratic nod.

In Alabama, Trump won with 43 percent of the vote. Clinton garnered 78 percent for the state.

Trump also was victorious in Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia. Ted Cruz took his home state of Texas, along with Oklahoma and Alaska. Marco Rubio took the Minnesota caucuses.

Clinton won Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Vermont was true to its native son, Democrat Bernie Sanders, who also won impressively in Colorado, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

“Super Tuesday’s results were an affirmation of the work that the Clinton campaign has put in across the nation,” Jordan Cozby said. Cozby campaigned as a delegate for Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

“In Alabama particularly, we saw that Secretary Clinton is able to bring together a broad coalition of voters who are committed to coming together for a stronger American future,” Cozby said.

Sen. Richard Shelby handily defeated opponents to capture the Republican race, without need for a runoff election. Jonathan McConnell and three other candidates had hoped to challenge Shelby’s seat in Congress.

Proposed statewide Amendment One for the Alabama Constitution passed. The amendment authorizes the legislature to provide a retirement program to which district attorneys and circuit clerks will pay 8.5 percent of their annual salary. Previously, taxpayers paid these funds, without contributions from the county officials.

In Madison County races, winners included Tim McNeese, County Commission, District 1 and Eddie Sisk, County Commission, District 3.

Alabamians cast 1,269,751 votes on Super Tuesday from the total registered voters of 3,066,732 or about 41 percent.
