Snowden Agrees Court Should Rule

Rep. Greg Snowden of Meridian says he supports the decision of state Republican Party chairman, Joe Nosef, to bypass hearing the challenge to the June primary run-off election.

Snowden serves on the executive committee of the Mississippi Republican Party, which is the group asked to hear state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s challenge to U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s win.

Snowden says state laws and committee rules made it impractical to believe the committee could have performed such a task.
