Yolanda Flowers will win the Democratic nomination for Alabama governor, CNN projects.
Flowers beat Malika Sanders-Fortier in a runoff election after neither candidate received more than 50% of the vote in the state's May primary. Sanders-Fortier just completed her first term as a state senator.
Flowers will face incumbent GOP Gov. Kay Ivey who won the May 24 primary with just more than 54% of the vote. She is running for her second full term in November.
Democrats last won the Alabama governorship in 1998.
