  • Mississippi Gubernatorial race over before it started

    https://thehill.com/homenews/state-w...-governor-race

    The winner of the state Gubernatorial race has to win a majority of votes cast plus win a majority of votes in a majority of legislative districts. If they fail to win a majority in both, the election falls to the House of Reps to decide. That is currently held by a GOP supermajority thanks to some good ole gerrymandering.

    I'm not sure how much of the vote the Dem nominee will have to earn, but it is going to have to be substantially more than the GOP nominee, who just has to play defense in 61 counties to prevent the Dem from winning a majority of the vote in them and the legislature will vote him into office after the election.

    MIssissippi was a beacon of political integrity until Republicans started winning elections in the 90's.

          Quick, head to the_donald to get some talking points on how this is all the Democrats fault.

          Spoiler - it technically is but let's ignore a MS Democrat in 1920 being far different than an MS Democrat in 2019.

            You're the one complaining about Republicans taking advantage of a system put in place by Democrats. How many of these gubernatorial races have been decided by the House of Representatives?

              1999 was the only time it happened. It looks like it may happen again in 2019.

              And Democrats are suing to end the system they put in place and Republicans are fighting against it. Which says more than what a person had next to their name in 1890 when it was implemented. It's becoming more of an issue with gerrymandering making it extremely difficult for a Democrat to win in 2019 even if they get more votes.

                  You were busted posting memes from the_donald here. Just own up to it.
