There were few surprises in last week’s election returns. The close races were close; the other races were blowouts. It will take months, even years, to see what it all means, but one message was sent loud and clear Nov. 2: Mississippians don’t like and don’t want term limits.
Let us hope that this issue is dead in the Magnolia State. Term-limit advocates liked to point out in their pre-election advertising blitz that more than 150,000 people signed up to have term limits placed on the ballot.
Well, more than 340,000 Mississippians voted against term limits last Tuesday.
