Three Legislative Seats Soon To Be Open

The elections of State Sen. Alan Nunnelee and State Rep. Steven Palazzo to Congress will soon open up their seats they occupy in the legislature. A third seat- currently occupied by Johnnie Walls in the Senate- will also open as he leaves to take a judgeship position on the Circuit Court’s 11th district.

As with special elections in Mississippi, there will be an open primary type system where any candidate can run and with no party label. If an individual fails to get 50 percent, the top two vote-getters will head to a runoff probably three weeks after the first vote.

Majority in Miss.
