DuPree, Luckett tout backgrounds

JACKSON — Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree, the top vote-getter in the Aug. 2 primaries, concedes on the issues there is not much difference between him and his opponent in Tuesday’s Democratic runoff, Clarksdale attorney and businessman Bill Luckett.

“We all have been talking about pretty much the same thing,” DuPree said last week between campaign stops. “We might get there a different way.”

But, “We’re all in this for the right reasons. I think we all want to make Mississippi a better place.”
