Neither candidate for the Republican primary runoff for the Second Congressional District did any significant campaigning in Yazoo County, and the turnout reflected that.
Brian Flowers carried Yazoo County with 245 votes to Thomas Carey’s 113.
Flowers was also declared the statewide winner with most precincts accounted for. Turnout was low across the state.
Flowers will be a serious underdog in the general election against longtime incumbent US Rep. Bennie Thompson in the general election.
