TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – Mississippi’s Democratic Party Chairman Rickey Cole made a stop Friday in Tupelo here at WTVA.
Despite taking hard hits over the last few years, especially in statewide elections, Cole told us Democrats in Mississippi are making a comeback starting with winning more local elections.
Cole said, “We were very successful last year in the mayoral elections, here in Tupelo for example. All over the state Democrats are organizing. We’re seeing a renaissance of Democrats at the local level. We’re bringing that up to the state and national levels in Mississippi over the next three election years.”
Cole has been touring Mississippi this week talking with both the media and local leaders.
Along with Tupelo his stops include the Delta, northwest Mississippi, and the Golden Triangle.
