Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran running for state treasurer

OCEAN SPRINGS — Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran has qualified to run for state treasurer, state Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Franks Jr. said late Tuesday.

Franks said he was pleased with Moran’s entry into the race. Democrats, after decades of holding most statewide offices, only hold one of eight currently — the AG’s office. Moran’s entry into the treasurer race means Democrats are vying this year for five of the eight statewide seats.
