Judge to hear case about Mississippi election process

- - less than a month before we - elect our new governor of - mississippi, a federal judge- will hear arguments - friday in a lawsuit challenging- our state's process - of electing leaders...what- critics say is designed to- thwart black political power.

- while both of our current - candidates for governor are - white, mississippi has a histor- of racially polarized voting, - with democrats doing well among- black votes and - republicans among white ones.

- our state's 1890 constitution - - - - says a candidate must win with- the majority vote, and a- majority of the state house - districts.

But if nobody wins,- the election is decided by the- house, which is now controlled- by republicans.

- with that in mind, the lawsuit- intends to look at concerns - over how this election process- might impact- democratic candidates.- it all happens tomorrow.

We'll- keep
