Clarion Ledger round-up on latest political news

GOP Chair Seeks Office

Republican Party Chairman Brad White could soon hang up his hat as leader of the Mississippi GOP as he seeks the Simpson County chancery clerk’s post.

White currently is “working with the governor and the committee on a transition,” though there are no immediate plans and a successor has not been picked, he said.

“Politics is all about windows of opportunity, and the last few months it’s been on my mind,” said the 33-year-old from Braxton.
