There's a special election coming up next Tuesday for a State House seat in eastern Mississippi near Meridian. It pits two black gentlemen vieing to replace the longtime incumbent who passed away a few months ago. The seat is drawn to elect a black democrat but the state GOP is financially helping the republican nominee out and when you add in the low turnout rate for special elections. It has a decent number of GOPers hopeful they could elect the first black GOPer in modern history to the state legislature next week.
