Lee D. Vance . . . . . . . . . 3,042 39.97

Surprised Green is pulling 15% of the vote. Expected a runoff. A little surprised Sheriff Mason is pulling nearly a third of the vote. Apparently there is no Yarber effect for the incumbent.

Jim Hood. . . . . . . . . . . 5,325 69.54
Robert Shuler Smith . . . . . . . 1,383 18.06

Jody Owens . . . . . . . . . . 5,365 49.63
Darla Palmer . . . . . . . . . 3,937 36.42

Kingfish privately predicted Jody would avoid a run-off. He is close. Close enough to scrutinize every ballot.

Colendula Green . . . . . . . . 1,603 14.70
Victor P. Mason . . . . . . . . 3,295 30.22

Toni Johnson . . . . . . . . . 707 24.89
Darrel McQuirter . . . . . . . . 883 31.08

Bobby 'Bobcat' McGowan . . . . . . 425 22.11

Tate Reeves. . . . . . . . . . 690 22.53
Bill Waller Jr. . . . . . . . . 2,219 72.47

No shocker here. Bailey got the nomination last time and Lott's main plug was well, a rather obvious one if you get my drift. Let's just say he was fond of pointing out the district demographics.

Jody Owens . . . . . . . . . . 7,981 50.88
Darla Palmer . . . . . . . . . 5,431 34.62

Jody avoiding a runoff so far. He should. He and his PAC dropped over $300,000 on the race. Stanley has the RSS machine working against him. Darla Palmer has been hustling but $50k<$300K  

Colendula Green . . . . . . . . 2,294 14.50
Victor P. Mason . . . . . . . . 4,823 30.48

Les Tannehill . . . . . . . . . 195 1.23
Lee D. Vance . . . . . . . . . 6,200 39.18

Lee continues to hold steady.  Will Green endorse Lee? He removed her from her coveted PIO position at JPD.  However, Sheriff Mason's sexual harassment antics might turn her off as well.  

Supervisor #2-D

Toni Johnson . . . . . . . . . 969 23.93

Bobby 'Bobcat' McGowan . . . . . . 863 33.21
Patty Patterson . . . . . . . . 599 23.05

The defending champ comes roaring back. Paving all those roads definitely helped.  Can Patterson hold on to make the runoff?

9:55 PM

Statewide (41%)

Tate Reeves GOP 61,941 46%
Bill Waller Jr. GOP 45,206 34%
Robert Foster GOP 26,240 20%

Tate begins to flirt with avoiding a runoff. Boy, would that disappoint the media. They've been pushing a runoff soooooooooooooo hard. Meanwhile, Hood kicks RSS's ass as expected. RSS is no truck driver. The drug-dealer defending District Attorney barely campaigned and didn't raise any money. Hood wasn't going to be caught napping as Vicki Slater was. Hood now giving his speech. Damn, Jim, your womenfolk don't look too happy, at all.

Jim Hood D 74,807 71%
Michael Brown D 9,623 9%

Did I mention this Maker's 46 is pretty good?

Nice try, Marcus. Shouldn't have listened to the Mayor.

House #63
Stephanie McKenzie Foster D 159 40%
Deborah Butler Dixon, (i) i D 136 34%
Machelle Shelby Kyles D 102 26%

Dixon made a fool of herself recently on the radio, but frankly, the black power crowd was coming hard after their newest "Tom". That's a name they give to whomever they don't like.

PSC Central-R 46%

Bomgar crushed Bartley four years ago. Different story this time. Record and mailers hurt. A real opponent with real funding might have beat Bomgar.

House #73
Johnny Black 1,250 36%
Jill Ford 2,422 64%

Yup.  Backlash.  Black raised around $200,000, Ford less than $100,000.

Anita Wray is beating Timothy Jenkins 2:1 Race is over.

Governor-R 64%
Tate Reeves GOP 112,713 48%
Bill Waller Jr. GOP 79,942 34%
Robert Foster GOP 42,939 18%

Tate flirts with avoiding a runoff. Foster doing better than expected. Interesting. The media pushed Waller but it will be the media that got votes for Foster. Irony.

Attorney General-R
Lynn Fitch GOP 98,799 43%
Andy Taggart GOP 67,416 29%
Mark Baker GOP 64,668 28%

A little more than the third out and only a 2,800 or so vote difference between Taggart and Baker? Long way to go.


Michael Watson GOP 120,474 55%
Sam Britton GOP 99,272 45%

Watson got this.

David McRae GOP 138,597 62%
Eugene Clarke GOP 85,978 38%

Buck will probably wind up in a GOP gubernatorial administration regardless of who wins on the GOP side.

Ownes avoids a runoff. You got what you wanted, Hinds County. Go look at Dallas. That is where you are going.

Juan Cloy . . . . . . . . . . 2,297 6.10
Colendula Green . . . . . . . . 5,156 13.70

Les Tannehill . . . . . . . . . 560 1.49
Lee D. Vance . . . . . . . . . 14,440 38.36

Well, let's see. Vic and Vance, the Killer V's. A certain honky is expecting the Chief job, but you know what Lee, you need to worry about winning first. Cut the deal with Cloy or Spooner. You need the votes.

Eddie Fair got 66%. So long, suckers.

Supervisor #2
David L. Archie . . . . . . . . 3,244 36.65
Toni Johnson . . . . . . . . . 2,422 27.36

Ass-kicking. Outspent more than 2:1. Probably close to 3:1.  Take a look at the Gene Newman race, Ford race, and Bomgar race.  They all have something in common. 

Now it's time for the late-night crew.  Ok, drunks, jump in!!!  You're my people.


Governor-R  76%
Tate Reeves GOP 138,956 49%
Bill Waller Jr. GOP 95,414 33%
Robert Foster GOP 52,087 18%

Said all week there was a 50/50 chance Tate avoids runoff. Let's see. Waller simply waited too long. He should have started the year with $1-2 million already in the bank. He didn't need to match Tate dollar for dollar, he just needed at least $3-4 million to get his message out and build up a GOTV effort. However, most of the big money donors and PACS were already committed.

Attorney General
Lynn Fitch GOP 125,006 45%
Andy Taggart GOP 78,400 28%
Mark Baker GOP 76,945 27%

1,455 margin between Taggart and Baker. Should Baker have attacked Taggart instead of Fitch so much? Did they take Taggart for granted? Something to ponder on the tree of woe, grasshopper.

House #61
Gene Newman GOP 1,923 54%
Michael Sartor GOP 1,659 46%

The mailers fail yet again. Wait til you see these. They are really good. Good job, Merle.

Robert Foster is so different than Bill Waller, I can guarantee you his voters will back Tate and Foster himself might endorse Tate if there is a runoff. And there may not be a run off.

Foster is no idiot. His future is bright if Tate wins and Foster is on board. Waller is a one and done candidate.

The baby boomer generation is the worst thing thats ever happened to this country. Until they die off, you can expect the political machines to continue to run the show. Unfortunately, when they die off, it will be too late. That spineless generation has screwed their grandchildren over.

Hinds County is a glutton for punishment..electing Owens will price to be a very poor choice. So much for a chance at turning the DAs office into a prosecutor’s office

Mason isn't sticking it in the eye of whitey. Mason made a runoff because whitey doesn't want the HCSO under the control of a person named Lumumba. Mason wins the run off.

Foster was on the right of Tate. I just don't see Foster's people all leaping over and joining the far left Waller crowd. The Waller crowd is the same group that would have voted for Hood but now they can claim to have supported a republican.

Not to mention, Foster knows his political future is bright if he backs Tate at this point. Waller will be in a nursing home in 4 years so Foster gets nothing out of backing Waller.

“1,455 margin between Taggart and Baker. Should Baker have attacked Taggart instead of Fitch so much? Did they take Taggart for granted? Something to ponder on the tree of woe, grasshopper. “

It sure would have been nice for the NEVER TRUMP TAGGART to have lost last night instead of Baker so we could be guaranteed a good AG either way.

Now we’ve got to get the Run Off vote out and make sure someone claiming to be Republican but would have preferred two Clinton SCOTUS picks over Trump’s Gorsuch and Kavanaugh…doesn’t slither into office.

I don't know? There are so many variables and too many people taking stuff for granted.

Lucien Smith was bragging on Paul Gallo this morning on how many people voted in the Republican primary.

But at the same token you look at some of the counties Tate Reeves did win, more people voted in the Democratic primary instead of the Republican primary.

Then who's to say more Republicans crossed over to vote in the Democrat primary opposed to the Dems that crossed over and voted in the Republican primary?

The only guarantee is that Tate Reeves has the gulf coast on lock and neither Hood or Waller has a chance down there. But when you look at the rest of Mississippi, Hood and Waller will give Reeves a run for his money through November, if Waller doesn't knock him out on August 27th

Hood—-was comical last night. If he gets elected governor he is gonna clean up corruption. Hello! Hasn’t he been the chief law enforcement person in MS for the past 8 years? Funny, fun, fun.
R governor race— Daddy Waller is dead. Let him Rest In Peace. MS for far too long has been stuck in the pass. Tate was impressive in debate. His knowledge of MS was superb, but he has been Lt. G. for 8 years. Impressed the way he defended himself against attackers with FACTS. Foster has a bright future in MS politics. Foster would be foolish to back Waller, & I don’t think he’s foolish; Waller is the past, Reeves the present, & Foster the future. Foster voters will definitely vote for Reeves. As said, Waller is history. Plus, MS can not afford Waller’s liberal ideas.
R AG—- Fitch is the one. Look for Baker’s supporters to with for her. She is a great lady! People do not trust (Kasich)Taggart THE NEVER TRUMPER. 2 conservative USSCJ, a booming economy even with people like Mr. Taggart fighting his ever turn.

@7:25 am - Madison county voter here. I waited in line for over an hour and a half to vote. I showed up at 6:30 like I normally do due to having to be at work by the time the polls open and my precinct being out of the way. I've never had any issues. There was a line out the door due to the machines breaking. The precinct subsequently ran out of paper ballots and there was a single emergency machine that required a special ballot. The poll workers counted out how many emergency ballots they had left and turned away the remaining voters (at least 5 or so) and there were a handful that left when they found out about the wait. At some point around 8 pm, a county or GOP official brought more ballots to the precinct so the line moved faster. I heard there were issues at another Madison precinct as well, so apparently the voter turnout in Madison was higher than anticipated. I find it shameful as well that our turnout is low. If you can't be bothered to vote, why bother complaining?

You can't talk about Mississippi being stuck in the past when all Tater Salad could muster for his campaign talking points is to MAINTAIN Mississippi's CONservative values.

There's no bright present or future with anything pertaining to Reeves or Foster. They'll continue making life easy for Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, and Arkansas while maintaining Mississippi's ass-backward image

"The fact that people think Bill Waller is liberal blows my mind. For 20+ years he wrote judicial opinions that are anything but liberal."

Sadly that is the Reeves spin machine. They claim he's a lifelong democrat, not knowing how Mississippi's primary system works and him living in hands county. Hopefully he can raise the money and defeat Tate. Our roads are latterly crumbling before our feet and Tate is touting he is not raising taxes. Our state is broke. Yes our taxes are low, but we are living in a shit hole compared to other states. How else can we function? I hear him talking no new taxes, well just with inflation in the past few years, if we want to keep up, something has to get cut. I haven't heard him mention not one thing about cutting programs.

Side note, Tate's Finance Chair is Billy VanDevender and he is directly and openly opposing the pumps the South Delta needs to keep from being under water for over 6 months. People without jobs, farmers(one of MS's biggest industries) not being able to make a crop, all their input retailers not selling, and road beds under water. Why no one is making a scene about this is beyond me. Yazoo, Warren, Sharkey, Issaquena counties Reeve's shouldn't have gotten a damn vote.

@11:21am - You should ask the Madison County Election Commissioners and the Madison County Circuit Clerk why precincts were running out of republican ballots not posting the question here. That problem and failure lands squarely in their respective wheel houses. From what I hear, the Republican committee contracted with the Madison county election commissioners to run the republican election for them. I would love to know what their answer would be.

The democratic committee ran their own.

You used the word "future" in your post and conservatives do not look to the future, because the definition of "conservative" is 'holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.' or 'a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics.'

So, yes there was irony in your comment by using the word "future" referring to any "conservative" politician in Mississippi.

Now I didn't question their productivity as human beings or levels of success. They have both won positions in public office. Kudos to them.

It still doesn't change what they have done or would do with higher office and how their positions on public policy are not in the best interest of Mississippi in my personal opinion. Especially considering our neighboring states are kicking our collective butts economically.

Well when you stick to traditional attitudes and values, guess what happens? You are not growing and adapting to the environment. You are not learning from your mistakes, because you assume you are already doing everything right.

Tate Reeves harps on conservative values, which means he wants to return to the glory days of segregation, Jim Crow, and Color Codes.

That apathetic mindset is what keeps Mississippi at the bottom. Time to get some folks in there that don't want to keep Mississippi at the bottom

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
