Ward elected No. 2 leadership post in Senate

JACKSON — Mississippi senators have unanimously elected one of their Republican colleagues, Giles Ward of Louisville, as the new president pro tempore, the Senate’s second-highest leadership post.

He will preside over the Senate when Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves is unavailable.

As pro tem, Ward succeeds Republican Terry Brown of Columbus, who died in September.

Ward says he will do his best to bring justice and honor to the post. He announced months ago that he will not seek a third term in the Senate this fall.
