Dawkins drops challenge in Mississippi House District 121

The Democratic race for the state House seat in District 121 apparently is over.

Hunter Dawkins said he won’t pursue his challenge after the Democratic Executive Committee refused to accept it. Dawkins said his only recourse would be to take his case to Circuit Court, a move that he and his attorney estimated would cost $10,000.

“And if I was successful,” he said, “then I would have to take on (Republican incumbent) Carolyn Crawford and I know she’s going to have some campaign money. And where would I get any money?”
