Bill Marcy Wins GOP Nomination in MS-02

Bill Marcy has been declared the winner in the Republican primary runoff in the Second District. With 82 percent of the precincts reports, Marcy has about 59 percent of the vote compared to 41 percent for 2008 nominee Richard Cook. Marcy will face Rep. Bennie Thompson in the fall, and obviously be a heavy underdog in the D+12 district Thompson has represented since 1993.

Majority in Miss.
