WLOX – Talking with Republican Gubernatorial candidate Tate Reeves
WLOX – A conversation with Delbert Hosemann, candidate for Lieutenant Governor
Freshman lawmaker Jay Hughes and Secretary of State Delbert Hughes will square off Nov. 5 in the general election for lieutenant governor.
Both have kept their campaigns focused on issues, not partisanship. They agree on several positions, but Democrat Hughes and Republicans disagree on others. Both came to the Clarion Ledger for a sit-down interview ahead of the election.
Democrat Lt. Governor candidates Hughes interviewed on @Issue on MPB
Details instead of sound bites: Thanks to MPB for this in-depth interview (19 minutes) about education, health care, and infrastructure. Grab a cup of coffee and take a break, if you can 😉
It ALL starts with education!https://t.co/ddhvczEwcZ

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that the new historical marker was to be dedicated Saturday with members of Till’s family in attendance.
The 14-year-old African American teen was beaten and killed in 1955 hours after he was accused of whistling at a white woman. An all-white jury in Mississippi acquitted two white men of murder charges. The memorial is at the site where Till’s body was pulled from the Tallahatchie River.
