Randolph re-elected to Miss. Supreme Court

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mike Randolph has been re-elected to the Mississippi Supreme Court in the southern or 2nd district, beating fellow Hattiesburg resident Talmadge Braddock.

Randolph's 8-year term begins in January.

Gov. Haley Barbour appointed Randolph, 65, to serve an unexpired term in April 2004. Randolph was elected to an 8-year term that November.

Previously, Randolph was a lawyer in private practice.

Braddock said voters should choose him because the high court was stacked with corporate defense lawyers. He mainly represents plaintiffs.

Although judicial candidates run without party labels, the state Republican Party endorsed Randolph.

Randolph had raised $429,000 as of Oct. 30, with support from lawyers and business, medical, insurance and real estate interests.

Braddock had borrowed $21,000 and raised about $8,000, mainly from himself, as of Oct. 30.
