pulldown menu for MISSISSIPPI PRIMARY results from a media source

The Democratic Party will conduct a primary election on 6 June to select nominees for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the 6 June primary, the two top vote-getters will proceed to a runoff scheduled for Tuesday 27 June. There will not be a Republican Party primary election on 6 June since no more than one candidate of that Party qualified for potential General Election ballot access re: each office.

All races involving an Incumbent are in boldface and also marked with an asterisk (*)

Contested STATEWIDE races:

  • United States Senate (Class 1 seat):
    • Democrats will be holding a runoff on Tuesday 27 June between Erik Fleming (44%) and Bill Bowlin (22%)
