JACKSON, Miss. — One of the Democrats running for Mississippi governor is sharpening his criticism of the Republican nominee. The other said he’s running on his own record and not talking about other candidates.
Bill Luckett said Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant has hurt state employees by making them pay more toward their own retirement. The Clarksdale attorney and businessman also said Bryant has fallen short on education funding.
Johnny DuPree said he’s running on his own record that includes work as a businessman, school board member, county supervisor and mayor of Hattiesburg.
