Commissioner Paul Lee is chosen as the republican candidate to face Merritt Carothers in the house district 86 seat race in November

He received the news last night after a final interview with the Alabama republican committee.

Lee says he is confident he can do the job.

"I know the needs and we want to try to make sure their needs are met, from our water needs to those type things to jobs, we've got to make sure we get jobs here to this area,” said Commissioner Paul Lee.

If elected, Lee will have to formally resign from the Dothan City Commission.

A special election would be held within 120 days to fill his seat.
