TUSCALOOSA COUNTY - AL -

It was a disappointing night for supporter at the Tuscaloosa Republican Party Headquarters. Sheriff Ted Sexton gave his concession speech just after 9 PM. He says his focus now will be his job as Tuscaloosa County Sheriff and working with Judge Hardy McCollum on issues impacting Tuscaloosa County.

These are two key officials in this area. Sheriff Ted Sexton is in his 6th term and incumbent Hardy McCollum has been in office for 36 years. Sheriff Sexton told us he ran to improve county services, upgrade technology, and develop new jobs.

"There are issues and challenges that lay ahead for Tuscaloosa County," Sheriff Ted Sexton, candidate said. "I look forward to working with Hardy. There are two new commissioners who come on tomorrow and I look forward to working with them to move forward to address the issues and challenges where I can."
