My Turn: Election Shocker

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Throw out all the polls showing Chokwe Lumumba trailing in the Jackson mayor's race, polls don't vote. With just the formality of the general election left it appears that Lumumba pulled of a shocker and will be Jackson's next mayor.

Can we all be honest about this election? Most white voters and the business community are scared of Lumumba and his controversial views. Most African American voters felt that Jonathan Lee was too closely aligned with conservative whites.

Even with two African Americans running for mayor it still comes down to race. Jackson is a divided city and Lumumba could really pull of a shocker if he can unify Jackson.
