JACKSON — Mississippi is sending all four of its U.S. House members back to Washington.
Two Republicans — Trent Kelly and Michael Guest — and the state federal delegation’s sole Democrat, Bennie Thompson, all bested challengers on Election Day. Republican Rep. Steve Palazzo won his race after running unopposed.
Mississippi voters reelected Justices Josiah Dennis Coleman, Mike Randolph and Leslie King to the state Supreme Court. They also voted in favor of eliminating a Reconstruction-era electoral college provision in races for governor and other statewide offices.
