WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Yesterday, Angela Cokerham the Democratic candidate for a southwest Mississippi House seat, received 68.5 percent of the vote in a special election, easily winning the District 96 seat. Cockerham's win is the fifth Democratic victory in a Mississippi special election this year. Cockerham has a bright future with the Democratic Party and was highly praised by her predecessor who is now retired.
"These Democratic victories in Mississippi demonstrate that when Democrats show up and talk about what they believe in, even in a state which Bush carried by 60 percent in 2004, they can win elections," said Democratic National Committee Spokesperson Amaya Smith. "Across the country from Virginia, to New Jersey, to California, and in Mississippi the Democratic message continues to resonate with voters. We are not giving up any ground or taking a single vote for granted, and we are organizing in all 50 states. Mississippi has helped to show what we've known all along that the values and priorities of Democrats are the values and priorities of the American people."
