Low Voter Turnout Expected Today

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Low voter turnout is predicted for today’s party primaries for one Senate seat and two in the House of Representatives. Roger Wicker, who has been in the Senate since 2007, faces Richard Boyanton of Diamondhead in GOP the primary and six candidates are running in the Democratic primary for his seat. They are attorney David Baria and restaurant owner Omeria Scott, both members of the Mississippi House, businessman Howard Sherman who is married to actress Sela Ward and has tapped into show business connections including Robert DeNiro and Alec Baldwin and Jensen Bohren, and Jerone Garland and Victor Maurice Jr. who are running low-budget campaigns. Republican Gregg Harper, first elected in 2008, is not running for re-election in Mississippi House District 3 which encompasses 24 counties in a diagonal across the middle of the state but six candidates are in the GOP primary with two in the Democratic primary. The 4th District encompasses all or part of 14 counties in southern Mississippi. Republican Steven Palazzo was first elected in 2010 after serving nearly four years in the state House and faces Brian Rose. If runoffs are needed, they will be held June 26th.
