BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks of Huntsville has won the GOP's nomination in the District 5 primary.
Brooks defeated Army veteran Clayton Hinchman.
Brooks is seeking his fifth term in Congress where he's become known as a Tea Party favorite whose public comments sometimes cause a stir. Brooks recently gained attention for wondering aloud if falling rocks and erosion, not melting ice, are causing sea levels to rise.
Hinchman left the Army after a wartime injury and founded USi, a Huntsville technology company where he still works.
Former Huntsville city attorney Peter Joffrion is unopposed for the Democratic nomination and will face the GOP nominee in November.
