Senator entering Jackson Mayor’s race, again

A state senator is getting back into Jackson’s mayoral race after having decided against it months ago.

Sen. John Horhn, D-Jackson, who’s serving his fifth term in the Mississippi Senate, believes his experience in the legislature can help the capital city foster much-needed relationships with the state and federal government.

“You’ve got to have a sense of where you’re going,” Horhn told The Clarion-Ledger in an interview several months ago when he planned to begin campaigning for mayor. “And there’s got to be something, I think, that can be articulated by the average Jacksonian. There is no message that the average citizen can articulate about where Jackson is headed. That’s, to me, the first step in looking at this whole scenario.”
