In Jackson County last night, Michael Watson and his supporters watched the results of the General Election come in as the polls closed and precincts throughout the state reported their numbers in the race for Secretary of State.
Watson’s spirits were high at the watch party as it became clear Mississippi voters had cast their ballots, electing him the next Secretary of State. “I just want to say thank you to the Gulf coast. It’s important that I’ve kinda just had the energy from the Coast knowing that one of their own is running statewide and coming out and supporting us so strongly. It has been important to me and it has meant a lot to me. So, I’m excited to serve as Secretary of State.”
