The Vicksburg Post, 7/24/7

Patricia Hosemann said she had never heard the name “Delbert” until she met and married a man with that name. When they named their son, Delbert Hosemann Jr. became the second “Delbert” she knew.

Her son is now running for Mississippi secretary of state, and his campaign is using his unusual name as the peg for an unusual TV ad.

The TV ad, which began airing Thursday, uses his name playfully to tell viewers what to expect if he is elected on ballots statewide in the Republican primary two weeks from today.
