GOP appeals decision to close ’08 primaries

By: Magnolia Tribune - August 14, 2007

The Mississippi Republican Party today appealed a federal judge’s decision to close party primaries in 2008.

The state GOP joins the NAACP, the state Democratic Party and Attorney General Jim Hood in asking the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn parts of U.S. District Judge Allen Pepper’s ruling.

The Mississippi Republican Party claims it was never involved in the lawsuit and should be exempt from the final ruling.
