 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Good Hope Mayor Corey Harbison has defeated incumbent Republican Rep. Mac Buttram of Cullman in the Republican runoff for House District 12.
    
With 97 percent of the precincts of reporting Tuesday night, Harbison had 55 percent of the vote to Buttram's 45 percent.
    
Harbison, 28, ran as a Montgomery outsider and on a platform of repealing Common Core.
    
The race became one of the most high-profile of the legislative election season. Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, former Gov. Bob Riley and other Republicans campaigned door-to-door in Cullman in support of Buttram.  The Alabama Education Association ran ads against Buttram.
    
Buttram, a retired Methodist minister, was elected to the House of Representatives in 2010.
    
There is not a Democrat in the race.
