Spruill seeks an end to court challenge of Starkville mayor’s race

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Lynn Spruill has filed a motion seeking to end Johnny Moore’s court challenge to her victory in the Starkville mayor’s race.

Moore narrowly lost to Spruill in the May Democratic primary and wants a judge to order a new election, saying there were voting irregularities.

Spruill, however, says in Friday’s filing that the Starkville Democratic Municipal Executive Committee has the final say concerning who won the election, not the courts.
