Rep. Herb Frierson outraised the rest of the Coast’s state House delegation but Rep. Hank Zuber by far has the most cash on hand, according to reports filed at the end of January.
Friersen, a Poplarville Republican who is the Appropriations Committee chairman, raised $50,850 last year, a non-election year. He has $79,759 to start the election year. Zuber, R-Ocean Springs, raised $39,500 and had $143,882 on hand.
Second-year Rep. Jeramey Anderson, D-Moss Point, finished at the other end of the spectrum with $5.03 on hand. He raised $10,462, the year after he won a special election to replace Billy Broomfield, who retired to become Moss Point mayor.
