Cross Wins Supervisor Race

Daniel Cross won yesterday's run-off election for the District 2 Supervisor's race.

1754 votes for Cross.
1118 votes for Brown.

With one write-in vote, that is a total of 2,873 votes cast in the District 2 race.

On the flip side, Steve Gaines edged Kenny Miller to win the District 4 Supervisor's race 1748 votes to 1421 votes.  I cannot find a precinct-by-precinct breakdown of the vote. Once that is made available, I will publish for you.

Three weeks ago, there were a total of 5,646 votes cast for Supervisor District 2.

But that is not the Stat of the Day.  Here is the Stat of the Day:  Rankin County Democrats held a runoff election for Transportation Commissioner. Every one of the 50 precincts in Rankin County was open for voting.  A grand total of 359 Rankin County Democrats felt the civic obligation to cast a vote.

The results are here.

And here is the link to Anna Wolfe's article in the Clarion Ledger.

Those results are only 88%.

And to be fair, what is basically the supervisor general election, and a transportation commissioner primary have very different levels of local advertising and voter interest.
