It looks like we will have runoff elections in all four Mississippi House and Senate districts that held special elections last week to replace recently-retired legislators.
The election results are still unofficial (they’ve not yet been certified), but all indications are that no candidate in any of the races garnered the 50%+ needed to win outright. The top two vote-getters in each race will face off again on Tuesday, October 13. See who advanced in each race here.
Candidates in all four races are coming clean about their views on public education. Find out what they have to say on issues like school funding, teacher pay, pre-k, and private school vouchers.
Be sure to join us the next three Thursdays for REAL TALK about public education. Hear straight from legislative leaders who have the greatest influence on legislation that affects our public schools. They’ll give us the low-down on the marathon session that is just ending and tell us what’s in store for 2021. They’ve even agreed to take your questions!
The 2021 Legislative Session will be here before we know it, but together, we’ve got this!
