Nunnelee wins race; Ross takes Marshall
Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo won the Republican primary Tuesday, June 1, in the race for U.S. representative, 1st Congressional District.
Unofficial results districtwide show Nunnelee received 52 percent of the vote. Trailing were Henry Ross of Eupora (33 percent) and Angela McGlowan of Oxford (15 percent).
Nunnelee led the ballot in 21 of the 24 counties.
But he did not lead the ballot in Marshall. Ross was the top vote-getter here. Official totals in Marshall, certified by the Republican Election Commission, had Ross with 515 votes, Nunnelee with 339 and McGlowan with 128.
Turnout was extremely low districtwide – 38,435 or about 6,000 votes below the Republican vote for Congress two years ago.
Nunnelee advances to face Democratic incumbent Travis Childers and seven others in the November 2 general election. Others include – Constitution Party candidate Gail Giamarita; independents A.G. Baddley, Les Green, Rick “Rico” Hoskins and Wally Pang; Libertarian Party candidate Harold Taylor; and Reform Party candidate Barbara Dale Waser.
