Judicial candidates put on ballot after rejection of challenges

JACKSON — Mississippi elections officials yesterday rejected requests to keep two judicial challengers off the Nov. 4 general election ballot.

Attorneys for Circuit Judge Lee Coleman in Clay, Oktibbeha, Lowndes and Noxubee counties questioned whether challenger Monique Brooks Montgomery meets residency requirements to run. The state Board of Elections Commissioners said she does.

The commission also approved Takiyah Perkins as a candidate for circuit judge in Leflore, Sunflower and Washington counties.
