MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican Margie Wilcox has easily won the Alabama House District 104 special general election in Mobile County.

Unofficial election returns show Wilcox defeated Democrat Stephen Carr with 2,931 votes, or 91 percent, to 307 votes, or 9 percent. The district in western Mobile County leans heavily Republican.

Wilcox is the owner of Yellow Cab of Mobile. She will take her seat in the Alabama Legislature later this week.

The seat was vacant after Rep. Jim Barton resigned in August to join a Montgomery lobbying firm.
