Supervisor switches to the Republican Party

Lincoln County Supervisor Dudley Nations recently announced his switch to the Republican Party.

Nations represents District 5, which includes voting precincts at Caseyville, Lipsey, Loyd Star, Old Red Star, Vaughn and Zetus. With Nations’ announcement, the board of supervisors now has two Republican members, Nations and District Four Supervisor Eddie Brown.

U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, U.S. Rep Gregg Harper, Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith, state Sen. Sally Doty, state Rep. Becky Currie, Lincoln County GOP Chairman John Roberts, and other local and county elected officials were on hand to welcome Nations to the GOP at a recent gathering.

“I am excited about Supervisor Nations joining the Mississippi GOP,” Cochran said. “I’ve always worked hard to expand our party and welcome all who believe in our values of limited government, free enterprise and individual responsibility.”

“I am pleased to welcome Supervisor Dudley Nations to the Mississippi Republican Party,” said Harper. “He understands that our party’s platform coincides with the values of Mississippians in Lincoln County and throughout the Magnolia State. I look forward to Dudley Nations having a valuable relationship with the MSGOP.”
