Mississippi’s Democratic and Republican parties are being taken over by younger, more aggressive leaders.

The changes could intensify the parties’ competition for voters’ hearts, minds and money.

Former state Rep. Jamie Franks of Mooreville was elected Saturday as the new chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, and he started the new position immediately.

His Republican Party counterpart is Brad White of Simpson County, who was elected in May and will become chairman after the GOP national convention in September.
