Hosemann calls McDaniel lawsuit a ‘distraction’

Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann has called State Sen. Chris McDaniel’s lawsuit a “distraction.”…

…Hosemann, who was on the Coast to speak to the Gulfport Rotary Club on Thursday, said this battle is a reminder that there is still political dysfunction in the state.

“There’s no reason for Mississippi to be involved in this litigation, and I’m hopeful we won’t be,” Hosemann said. “I’m glad it’s finally getting to court. It’s time for the challenger to go forward and get a decision. We’ve got military oversees voting stuff that goes out in the middle of September, and I need a resolution for the general ballot.”
