Election day in Birmingham
Today is election day in Birmingham, Al for the Mayor's office. The race pits Jefferson County Commissioner and former Mayor William Bell against local attorney Patrick Cooper. A few weeks ago it looked liked Cooper would win by a decent margin but Mr Bell has surged here in the last week. So its anyones guess right now. I'm still sticking with my prediction of a Cooper win but we will see tonight. The winner will fill the remaining two years left in Larry Langford's term. Mr Langford was removed from office last October after a federal grand jury found him guilty on corruption charges. He is currently facing a life sentence in prison.
