Mitt Romney has won Alabama’s nine electoral votes, according to the Associated Press. That was no surprise: No Democratic presidential candidate has won the state in more than three decades.


Rep. Terri A. Sewell (D) held onto her party’s sole House seat, the Associated Press has projected. Sewell, the first African American woman to serve in Congress from Alabama, defeated Republican businessman Don Chamberlain in a rematch of the 2010 7th District contest.

The state’s six Republican incumbents also held onto their seats, according to the AP.
