“I am pleased the United States Supreme Court sustained my position that the Mississippi Constitution should control the election of its Legislature.

The ruling by the Supreme Court guarantees our Legislators will not have to run in special elections before the next regular election in 2015. This is a significant savings of taxpayer dollars. The Constitution and the State of Mississippi had a good day.”
