Hattiesburg Mayoral Candidate Withdraws From Race

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss.- The race for the city's top executive position has dropped from five men to four.

Rev. Nathan Jordan released a statement Wednesday saying he will not run for mayor in the special election.

Gov. Phil Bryant decided that Sept. 24 is when residents will get the chance to vote again for mayor.

Jordan in his letter said he will support and campaign for former Councilman Dave Ware.

According to the records from the June 4 election, Jordan received 93 votes.

Outside of incumbent Johnny DuPree and Ware, Clyde Stewart and Shawn O'Hara are the other candidates who ran in the general election as independents.
