General elections are June 4, and mayors take office July 1.

Five state House members ran in Democratic primaries.

Rep. Kelvin Buck will be the next mayor of Holly Springs.

Rep. Billy Broomfield advanced to the general election in Moss Point.

Rep. Omeria Scott moves to a primary runoff in Laurel.
