HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WTVY) - Brandon Shoupe will become Houston County’s new chairman after turning back challenges from his two Republican opponents on Tuesday, one of them his longtime fellow commissioner.

Riding a strong performance in western areas of the county, Shoupe outdistanced Doug Sinquefield and Webb businessman Bobby Lewis, avoiding a runoff.

On the Houston County Commission Shoupe has represented District 4 since 2015, while Sinquefield became the District 2 representative in 2011.

Shoupe takes over in January from Mark Culver, who has been chairman for 25 years.

No Democrat sought the office.
