Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions has defeated Democratic state Sen. Vivian Davis Figures in his bid for a third term.

With a big lead in pre-election polls, Sessions highlighted his conservative credentials and experience to win Tuesday.

Figures lacked funds for a major effort in her first statewide campaign. She had attempted to become the first black U.S. senator for Alabama and the first woman elected to the post in this state.

2,533 of 2,843 precincts - 89 percent
x-Jeff Sessions, GOP (i) 1,164,032 - 63 percent
Vivian Figures, Dem 687,051 - 37 percent
