Joe Nosef, Chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party, issued the following statement in response to media inquiries about the upcoming runoff election:

“The law prohibits anyone from buying or selling a vote, as it should. We want a clean, hard fought primary decided by voters who plan to support the Republican Party and our candidates in November. I personally have been and continue to be in touch with legal counsel as well as representatives from both campaigns in order to ensure that our runoff is accurate and legal.”
