Even Dead Candidate Wins in Alabama GOP Landslide

Republican nominee Charles Beasley, who died on Oct. 12, beat out Democratic incumbent Walter Sansing for a seat on the Bibb County Commission in Alabama, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. Probate Judge Jerry Pow said voters probably didn’t know Beasley had died before the election and since the ballots were printed before his death, they couldn’t be changed before the vote. Beasley carried 52 percent of the vote.
