Mississippi governor sending campaign money to fellow Republicans

Other Mississippi incumbents are outspending their challengers by wide margins, including Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood, who has raised more than $1.9 million and spent nearly $1.3 million as he seeks a fourth term. Hurst, a former federal prosecutor, has raised $948,120 and spent $861,502.

Hood’s campaign has received $850,000 from the Denver-based Democratic Attorneys General Association.
