Alabama won't have a husband and wife serving in the Legislature at the same time. Children's boutique owner Susan Hightower lost her bid Tuesday to join her husband, Republican Sen. Bill Hightower of Mobile, in the Legislature. Mobile cab company owner Margie Wilcox defeated Hightower on Tuesday in the Republican runoff for House District 104 in Mobile County. Hightower led the primary, but Wilcox pulled ahead in the runoff after making an issue of whether one couple should hold the area's House and Senate seats.
