State election commissioners delay decision on Democrat replacement to face Steven Palazzo

State election commissioners on Monday delayed a decision on whether to let Democrats replace their nominee in south Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District.

Commissioners will meet again to discuss the issue on Wednesday, which also is the deadline for commissioners to give county elections officials the sample ballot for the Nov. 6 elections.
In March, Michael Herrington of Hattiesburg won the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo of Biloxi. But Herrington recently filed a sworn statement saying he’s leaving the race because his mother is ill.
