HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Mississippi primary is set for tomorrow and voters are getting ready to support their favorite candidates.

Presidential candidates John Kasich and Donald Trump have already made appearances in the Magnolia state and have picked up major endorsements.  

Kasich picked up endorsements from State Representative Toby Barker and Hattiesburg City Council President Kim Bradley.

Donald Trump has endorsements from State Representatives Joey Fillingane and Gary Staples.

However, we reported last week that officials were fixing election ballots after the state Supreme Court ordered another candidate to be added to the Democratic ballot. 

Forrest County Circuit Clerk Gwen Wilks says the issue has been "resolved".
