Bryant sets date for election to fill Flowers’ Senate seat

DESOTO COUNTY — Gov. Phil Bryant says the election to fill a state Senate seat left vacant by the resignation of Merle Flowers will be held during the Nov. 6 elections.

Bryant says in a news release holding the election for Mississippi Senate District 19 in DeSoto County on that day will save the cost of a special election because it coincides with the general election.

Flowers resigned July 11.

The qualifying deadline for candidates is Oct. 8.
