MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama voters have canceled "We Love Lucy," one of the longest-running hits in state politics.
Lucy Baxley built a successful political career by always using a campaign slogan playing off Lucille Ball's long-running TV show. Voters did love Baxley for a long time, keeping her in office for years after they dispatched other Democrats. But voters finally put her out of office Tuesday in one of the biggest elections ever for the Alabama Republican Party.
