HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Clinton auto body shop owner who's a plaintiff in a major lawsuit against the insurance industry is hoping to unseat Republican incumbent insurance commissioner Mike Chaney.  

Republican John Mosley was in Hattiesburg Wednesday afternoon. 

He says he wants to reduce insurance rates and bring transparency to the insurance commissioner's office. 

Last summer, Mosley was one of three people who sued several insurance companies, accusing them of cutting corners when it comes to properly repairing vehicles.  That suit, now centered in Orlando, Florida, has grown to include 500 repair shops in 41 states.  

"I fully intend to win this race and when I go in that office, I'm going to work with insurance companies to be fair," said Mosley. "But, at the same time, things are going to have to change. There's going to have to be accountability, there's going to have to be transparency and consumers are going to need to know what they are getting when they buy a policy," he said.  

Mosley will face Chaney in the Aug. 4 primary.
