Voter Turnout Looks Low in 2nd Dist. GOP Primary

Jackson, MS -- Richard Cook and Bill Marcy are in the Republican Runoff Election today to vie for a chance to go against Bennie Thompson in the November General Election.

I voted at 7:00 this morning, and there were only two of us in line. Voter turnout is usually low in runoffs, and today seems to be no exception in the GOP Runoff for Mississippi's 2nd Congressional District. The good news for those who vote, however, is that their vote is multiplied because of the low turnout, and they have more of a voice as to who will be running in November, because they cared enough to go to the polls and vote.

The lnks to the candidates' websites are:

Richard Cook

Bill Marcy

It will probably be at least 8:00 p.m. before we know who the winner of today's election is. Please pray, be informed, and go vote!
