Rep. Steven Palazzo forced into runoff amid campaign funds investigation

Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS) has been forced into a runoff election amid an investigation into campaign finances regarding his use of donation dollars.

According to a report by The Washington Examiner, Palazzo is facing a crowded field of Republican challengers for the 4th Congressional District after the accusations that he misused campaign funds.

The Office of Congressional Ethics report from 2021 stated that there was substantial reason to believe” Palazzo “converted funds to personal use.”

After the report surfaced, Palazzo put out a statement claiming that the allegations were politically motivated.

According to the Examiner, “Mississippi requires a candidate to win a majority rather than a plurality in order to be the outright winner of a primary.

The publication went on to say that “without a majority, the top two vote-getters head to a runoff election. A crowded field of candidates may have otherwise split an anti-incumbent vote in Palazzo’s favor.

“Palazzo’s rivals hit the longtime lawmaker not just for the ethics investigation, but for skipping candidate forums in the 4th District, which covers the southeastern region of the state between Louisiana and Alabama.”

As it stands now, Palazzo is slated to face state Sen. Brice Wiggins or Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell in his runoff election, which is scheduled for June 28.

Despite the Current Democrat majority in the House of Representatives currently, Republicans are expected to take the House and possibly the Senate in the upcoming midterm election. This is despite what appears to be hotly contested races on many fronts as the primary parties struggle to push their agenda on a national level.
