2015 Candidates for Governor

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant will face a primary challenger in Mitch Young who filed his candidacy on February 26th. Little is known about Young who hails from Lamar County. Bryant is undoubtedly the favorite with $2.4 million of campaign funds already on hand not to mention a successful first term.

The Democrats will run 3 candidates in their primary: Robert Gray, Valerie Andrea Smartt Short, and Vicki Slater. Slater, a Madison attorney that has never held public office, appears to be the Democrat front-runner based on media reports.

Primary elections will be August 4th with the general election to follow on November 3rd.
