JACKSON – Republican Delbert Hosemann of Jackson said Thursday that he’s asking Mississippi voters to hire him for a second term as secretary of state.
Hosemann, first elected in 2007, said he has led the effort to improve business laws and promote fair elections. He said his office also has increased the state’s revenue from publicly owned tidelands and 16th Section school lands.
The 63-year-old is traveling the state this week to launch his re-election bid. He will be in Tupelo today.
Hosemann is the only candidate for secretary of state, so far. Qualifying deadline for statewide offices is Tuesday.
