MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Republican contest in Alabama's 1st Congressional District is headed to a runoff Nov. 5 between former two-year college chancellor Bradley Byrne of Fairhope and Orange Beach businessman Dean Young.
 
The runoff for the open seat in southwest Alabama will be a classic GOP battle. The better-funded Byrne has strong ties to Alabama business leaders and the Republican establishment while Young is a tea party favorite and longtime ally of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.
 
In complete but unofficial returns last night, Byrne got nearly 35 percent of the vote, followed by Young with 23 percent. State Rep. Chad Fincher was third with 16 percent.
