Here is the final list of the ten candidates to qualify for the open First District seat. I believe the Independent and Green candidate are running in the November general election only.
Democrats- Steve Holland of Plantersville, a State Rep.; Brian Neely of Tupelo, attorney; Travis Childers of Booneville, Prentiss County Chancery Clerk; Marshall Coleman of Calhoun City, a restaurant owner; Ken Hurt of Verona, a political consultant
Republicans- Greg Davis, Southaven mayor; Glenn McCullough, Jr, former Tupelo mayor; Randy Russell of Oxford, an ophthalmologist
Independent- Wally Pang of Batesville, a restaurant owner
Green- John Wages, Jr. or Tupelo, Itawamba Community College professor (go figure, a college instructor who supports the Green party- who woulda thunk it?)
