Monday Afternoon Election Notebook
A couple notes on the 2011 elections…
** Add another competitive Republican primary to the list. Tim Johnson, who has served two terms as a supervisor in Madison County, qualified today to be a Republican candidate for Central District Transportation Commissioner. You can read Johnson’s full press release here.
Republican Dick Hall is serving his third term in the position.
** You can keep up with the Democrats who have qualified for office at their party’s website. A helpful resource, yet this group is known as “Democratic Candidates for 2012” on the website.
According to this list, Jim Hood- who will be seeking a third term as attorney general- has not officially entered yet. In fact, Johnny DuPree and Bill Luckett are the only statewide Democrats to have qualified so far. Brandon Presley is the only candidate to run for one of the six regional offices (transportation commission or public service commission).
** The Mississippi Republican Party has also posted a listing of GOP qualifiers on their website.
Of note, Scottie Cuevas, a former Democratic state Senator, has qualified to run for Southern District Transportation Commissioner as a Republican. He will meet Sen. Tom King in the primary.
** Here are a couple pictures from Dave Dennis’ campaign kickoff tour that began this morning in Pass Christian.
