Barton ran in a special election for Alabama State Senate District 35. The seat is vacant due to Ben Brooks's (R) election as as a circuit judge in Mobile County on November 6, 2012. Once he was sworn into the new position a special election had to be held to fill the vacancy. A special primary was scheduled for January 29, 2013. Candidates had until December 13, 2012 to file. Since no Democrats filed, the primary became the general election. A runoff between the top two vote-getters, Barton and Bill Hightower, took place March 12, which Hightower won.[2][3][4][5]
