Mississippi statewide election results

Biden earns enough delegates to win Democratic presidential nomination with Georgia primary victory.

Trump clinches Republican Presidential nomination with Washington primary victory.


Ty Pinkins, unchallenged in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, quickly challenged his Republican opponent, incumbent Sen. Roger Wicker to a series of four debates during the upcoming campaign for the November election, one in each of the state’s four Congressional districts.

In his victory speech Tuesday night, Pinkins made it clear that he is eager to engage with Senator Wicker on the critical issues facing Mississippians. “I invite Senator Wicker to meet me anyplace, anytime to debate,” Pinkins declared.

Pinkins extended an invitation to institutions across Mississippi’s four congressional districts, encouraging them to host these pivotal debates. “Any institution within Mississippi’s four congressional districts that wants to facilitate this crucial exchange of ideas, invite us. I will be there, ready to discuss how we can move Mississippi forward together,” Pinkins stated.
