Businessman Dean Young is facing off against former state Sen. Bradley Byrne in a GOP runoff election in Alabama's 1st district on Tuesday.

The two entered a runoff after a special election in September, when they topped a field of nine candidates.

Young, a conservative activist, has stirred controversy in the past with questionable remarks about gay rights activists and President Barack Obama's birthplace.
