Montgomery, Al (CNN) – Alabama Judge Steven Reed has won a runoff election and will now be the first black mayor of the city of Montgomery.

The 45-year old became the first African American and the youngest person to be elected as a probate judge in Montgomery County back in 2012.

His challenger in Tuesday’s run-off vote was businessman David Woods, who owns Montgomery’s Fox affiliate station.
