Former Miss America wins nomination for Congress

Former Miss America Mallory Hagan of Opelika has won the Democratic nomination in an Alabama congressional race.

She defeated Adia Winfrey of Talladega and will face U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers in the fall.

Hagan was crowned Miss America in 2013 and until recently worked as a news anchor at WLTZ-TV in Columbus, Georgia. She says many people feel unheard after nearly four terms of Rogers holding the seat.

Winfrey is a psychologist who said she was inspired to run by the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She was a volunteer in Sen. Doug Jones’ successful Democratic campaign last year.

Rogers is unopposed for the GOP nomination. He’s from Anniston.
