Dawkins challenges one-vote loss in Harrison County’s House District 121

A Democratic candidate is challenging his one-vote loss in the House District 121 primary.

Hunter Dawkins’ challenge says a “mystery” ballot tainted six other affidavit ballots and none of them should have been counted. If those are thrown out, the challenge says, Dawkins would be the winner. It asks the Harrison County Democratic Executive Committee to do just that.

The winner will face Republican incumbent Carolyn Crawford in the Nov. 3 general election.
