Candidates start filing letters of intent for 2015 elections

Democratic Party Chairman Rickey Cole says they are looking to capitalize on the desire for change in the legislature.

“There are thousands upon thousands of Mississippians who regularly vote Democratic,” Cole said. “We intend this year to increase that number this year.”

Cole says they’ll do what they can to shift the power back in their favor.

“We intend to field strong candidates in the House and Senate with an eye toward taking the majority in the legislature,” described Cole.
