Phillip Ensler Victory Flips Alabama House Seat to Democrats
Democrats struggled in statewide races in Alabama, but Montgomery Democrat Phillip Ensler flipped a seat in the Alabama House with his victory.
Unofficial results in Alabama House District 74 show Ensler with 60% of the vote to Republican incumbent Charlotte Meadows 40%. The district lines were redrawn earlier this year based on the 2020 Census, which made it more favorable to a Democratic candidate.
Ensler is celebrating his victory, not just as a Democrat, but as a Jewish candidate for office.
Meadows had won the seat in a special election in 2019 following the death of State Rep. Dimitri Polizos.
