WARREN COUNTY — Five people have qualified to run in a special election to succeed Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs Jr. in the Mississippi House of Representatives.

Flaggs retired from his seat June 30 and was sworn in as mayor the following day.
The winner will fill the 2½ years remaining on the term.
