For the first time in 38 years, voters in Mississippi House District 69, which includes parts of West Jackson and smaller parts of Clinton and Raymond, will not see Rep. Alyce Clarke, D-Jackson, on their ballots. Clarke, who became the state's first Black woman legislator in 1985, is retiring, leaving an open race to replace her in the state House of Representatives. Four candidates have filed to do so. All four are Democrats, meaning the winner of the Aug. 8 primary, or Aug. 29 runoff, will win the seat.
