With 100 percent of boxes reporting, Marengo County cast their ballots for the leading candidates in the presidential and statewide primaries.

Unsurprisingly, President Joe Biden (D) and former President Donald Trump emerged victorious in Marengo County and across the entire state in the Super Tuesday primaries. The two will likely face each other in the general election in November.

U.S. House District 7 Rep. Terri Sewell won the Democratic Primary with nearly 93 percent of the vote across the district. In Marengo County, Sewell won the Democratic Primary with 77 percent of the votes cast over Christopher Davis.

Sewell will face Republican Robin Litaker in the general election, after Christian Horn was allowed to withdraw from the race. Horn withdrew too late to have his name taken off the ballot.

“To every voter who supported our campaign, I say thank you. It is because of your support that I can officially announce that I am the Democratic nominee for Alabama’s 7th Congressional District,” Sewell said. “While we celebrate our victory tonight, we know that our fight is not over. There is too much at stake for us to be on the sidelines. We have to keep working to lower costs and grow our economy. We have to keep working to make healthcare more affordable. We have to keep working to make our communities safer. And we have to protect our democracy and our sacred right to vote from those who seek to take us back.

“I look forward to us working together as we march toward November and victory. Thank you again for your support. It is an honor to represent you in Congress, and I look forward to the work that lies ahead.”
