The Guardian: Coverage of the Bradley Byrne vs. Dean Young in GOP Run-Off in Alabama's Congressional District One

The Guardian article is linked below.

The Guardian: The Mainstream GOP vs. The Tea Party in Lower Alabama

"Byrne, a smooth-talking attorney, is up against a gritty, ultra-conservative opponent, Dean Young. On a mission to save Christian civilisation, Young, who describes his supporters as 'pitchfork people', is opposed to gay people 'pretending they're married' and believes Barack Obama was probably born in Kenya.
The contest between Byrne and Young is seen as a fight for the heart and soul of a Republican party licking its wounds after the government shutdown led to plummeting poll ratings. As such, it is being watched closely by political analysts in Washington."
