JACKSON, Mississippi - First District Republican Alan Nunnelee is the only Mississippi congressman without a party primary this year.
JACKSON, Mississippi - "I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend, Mayor Chokwe Lumumba. I have known Mayor Lumumba since 1974. One of the reasons I was so public about my support for the mayor, was that I believed once people got to know the real Chokwe Lumumba they would find him to be an extremely bright, caring and humble individual. His election as mayor and very short term in office demonstrated exactly that. This evening the city of Jackson truly suffered a great loss. I would like to extend my condolences to the Lumumba family and the city of Jackson." - U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, Democrat, 2nd District.
JACKSON, Mississippi - Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba (SHOW-kway Lu-MOOM-bah), a human rights activist and nationally prominent attorney who as city leader persuaded voters into accepting a sales tax to fix crumbling infrastructure in Mississippi's capital, died Tuesday. He was 66.
GREENWOOD, Mississippi - Mayor Carolyn McAdams and three members of the Greenwood City Council will visit with congressional leaders during the National League of Cities' annual meeting in Washington next month.
