Rick Mize with 93.7 FM – SuperTalk Mississippi in Oxford shared some interesting highlights from races in various North Mississippi counties:
Longtime Sheriff Dennis Darby loses to Shane Phelps
Luther Folson Jr. (D) who defeated longtime incumbent Lance Humphries in the primary faced Independent challenger Mark Fulco.
After the ballots were in, Folson led by 1. After the affidavits and absentees were counted, Fulco leads by 2.
Two rare runoffs will take place, which Mize said only applies to non-partisan races and judicial seats which have no primaries.
Supreme Court District 3- Northern: Bobby Chamberlin vs. John Brady
Superintendent of Education: Carrie Skelton vs. Lela Smith-Hale
The date of the runoff is scheduled for Friday, November 29th which is Black Friday
