ALABAMA (WTVM) - One race too close to call is the Alabama State Senate race for District 27.

Incumbent Tom Whately and Auburn City Councilman Jay Hovey are neck and neck.

Hovey finished with just four more votes than Whately -- an 8,367 vote count compared to 8,363.

News Leader 9 has reached out to both candidates. However, we have yet to hear back.
