…State Auditor Stacey Pickering has confirmed he’s planning to run for re-election at this point. I got a copy of a flyer for his annual
“Come Hail or High Water” golf tournament re-election fundraiser, set for Oct. 13.
…State Sen. David Blount, D-Jackson, says he’s running for re-election to the District 29 seat representing Hinds County, where he’s served for two terms and is chairman of the Public Properties Committee and vice chairman of Elections.
Cory Wilson, former chief of staff for Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, said he plans to run for the state House District 73 seat. That district, currently represented by Rep. Brad Oberhousen, D-Jackson, will be shifting next year because of redistricting from Hinds County to Madison County, and Oberhousen will no longer be in that district.
