3. Sorta

The Republican governor was very popular, but term-limited. Hood is very well known across the state.

4. Unless Hood wins a majority the House gets to pick

It’s all Republicans.

8. Blatantly racist election system.

~
Mississippi’s white leaders did not disguise their intentions. “There is no use to equivocate or lie about the matter,” James K. Vardaman, one of the constitution’s framers as well as a future governor and senator, once boasted. “Mississippi’s constitutional convention of 1890 was held for no other purpose than to eliminate the n_____r from politics.”

Black voters have sued but I don't know where that stands.

6. Still only 28% in

54-45, not looking good but it's early.

7. If he can keep it within single digits

then it's definitely a moral win... given it's Mississippi.
