Dean Young Runoff Election: Republican Aims For Alabama Congressional Seat

Republican Dean Young, who has made headline for his controversial remarks on gay rights and President Barack Obama's birthplace, is facing off against fellow GOP candidate Bradley Byrne at the polls on Tuesday.

The two are fighting in a runoff election in Alabama's 1st district. The winner of the primary will enter the general election to fill the seat left vacant by former Rep. Jo Bonner (R-Ala.), who left office earlier this year.
