TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — We’re still a year away from the next presidential election.

But the 2015 off year elections are Tuesday and Governor Phil Bryant and others will be trying to hold on to their state wide seats.

Lee County Republicans gathered for a rally in Tupelo Saturday and one of the few seats held by the GOP is attorney general where Mike Hurst is challenging incumbent Democrat Jim Hood who has been in office since 2004. June Geddie is Chairman of the Lee County Republican Party. She believes the AG and the 42 initiative dealing with school funding will keep GOP turnout high.

“The voter turnout is going to be mostly for two things to vote for Mike Hurst for Attorney General and to vote against 42,” she emphasizes.
“If you vote for 42 what will happen is it will take your representation and give it to one judge in Hinds County which you have no ability to do anything about. It’s called taxation without representation. And people are saying “No” that’s not what our forefathers fought for,” she concludes.

Geddie says there are some interesting local races including the District Attorney contest to replace Trent Kelly who got elected to Congress.

And she says the Lee County GOP is prepared to start working for next year’s big election.
