Dixie Newman wins State Senate race
The certified winner of the Coast’s closest election this primary season is speaking out following the win.
Current Biloxi City Council member Dixie Newman was certified yesterday by the Republican Executive Committee. Newman still holds a one-vote lead over Scott Delano.
Delano and his attorney along with a representative will examine and recount votes at some point next week.
Newman says she’s optimistic about the entire process. “It feels great, but at the same time I’m still kind of on the edge, not knowing what to expect because we all know he’s going to be contesting it. So, I’m feeling optimistic and I’m just giving it to the Lord and whatever happens, happens.”
News 25 will continue to update you of any developments with the recount.
