Friday Evening Election Notebook
A couple notes on the 2011 elections…
** We’ve added another former Democrat to our list of party-switchers. Lincoln County Chancery Clerk Tillmon Bishop announced last week that he would qualify for re-election as a Republican after previously serving as a Democrat.
** It looks like the Democrats have two candidates for Public Service Commissioner in the Southern District lined up: James Buckhaults and Mike Collier. Both men ran in 2007 also.
** Jackson Jambalaya has a copy of a Lee Yancey fundraiser invite for an event that was help in Jackson on Tuesday. You can check out a copy of it here.
** One of Yancey’s opponent’s, Lucien Smith, has launched his campaign site and you can check it out here.
** We had previously mentioned that the Democrats had a candidate lined up for the House District 4 seat being left vacant by Rep. Greg Ward; Steven Fisher has qualified as a Democrat for this open seat.
