Will Hattiesburg #MakeItRehn on Mississippi’s Republicans?
Mississippi Democrats finally have a chance to break the Republican Party’s lock on the Mississippi State House, and it all hinges on the outcome of Tuesday’s election for Mississippi House District 102, which sits in the Hattiesburg area. (Click here for a map of HD 102)
If lifelong Hub City resident Kathryn Rehner, 27, wins on Tuesday, a Democrat will take the seat held by former Republican representative Toby Barker, who is now the politically independent mayor of Hattiesburg.
A Rehner victory would leave the GOP with only 73 of 122 seats in the House. A supermajority requires that a party controls 74 seats, or three-fifths of the chamber.
