Special Election Set Following Resignation of Mississippi Lawmaker
Gov. Phil Bryant has announced a special election to fill an opening in the state House of Representatives. The election, for the House District 45 seat, will be May 5, with a runoff held on May 26 if needed.
The vacancy is a result of Rep. Bennett Malone resigning earlier this month and the winner will serve the last few months of his four-year term.
With the election occurring a month after the legislature adjourns, it is unlikely the new lawmaker will vote on bills.
