Two Jackson mayoral candidates held press conferences yesterday touting some pretty serious endorsements, as we head in to the last weekend before Tuesday’s election.

State Sen. John Horhn touted a campaign theme of “missed opportunities” with friends from the state legislature including Representatives Cecil Brown (D-Jackson) and George Flaggs (D-Vicksburg) and Senators Sampson Jackson (D-DeKalb) and Kelvin Butler (D-Magnolia).

City Councilman Marshand Crisler made his final push with 21 supporters, including Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin and state Rep. Credell Calhoun (D-Jackson).

However, the endorsement that caught my eye was Jackson Councilman Jeff Weill, a Republican who represents the predominately white Ward 1. His support of Crisler is a major signal that not only is Crisler targeting the white vote, but stands to receive a large chunk of the area’s vote on Tuesday.
