A special election has been scheduled for this summer to fill the House District 72 seat in west Alabama, vacated by Bobby Singleton.
Singleton resigned after being elected to the Alabama Senate in mid-January of this year.
Gov. Bob Riley has set a Mar. 18 qualifying deadline for candidates.
The party primaries will be May 3, with runoffs, if necessary, on June 14.
The general election was set for July 19.
However, if runoffs are not necessary, the general election would be on June 14.
