Nine candidates were in the running, but Hickman is projected to come out on top with 23% of the votes.
Hickman said his platform is built on his background and who he is as a prelaw professor, parent, and small business owner.
“It feels amazing I feel like the work me, and my team has done has been worth it all. I Know the need for Mississippi to fix this infrastructure.

Hickman said he and his campaign team knocked on over 7,000 doors during his campaign.
