Woodfin Appears to Have Beaten Bell in Birmingham Mayor’s Race

Randall Woodfin appears to have beaten incumbent William Bell in the race to be Birmingham’s next mayor.

Woodfin had 59 percent of the vote to Bell’s 41 percent with 96 percent of the vote counted.

“Birmingham, this is our moment,” Woodfin said to supporters at his campaign party.

Bell had not conceded, but he appeared to his supporters and said “the numbers do not look good.” Bell said he is grateful to the people of Birmingham for the many opportunities they have given him.
