Jones County candidate for Circuit Court Judge withdraws

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Laurel attorney Noel Rogers has withdrawn from the Jones County Circuit Court Judge race.

Rogers said he asked the Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann on Thursday to withdraw his name from ballot as potential candidate. He said his decision was based on his word to Judge Billy Joe Landrum that he wouldn't run against him.

"After much prayer and thought, I just feel like this isn't the right time," said Rogers. "I feel like I need to wait another four years."

Rogers thanks everyone for their support. He said he enjoyed meeting many Jones County faces throughout his campaign process.
