Former state Rep. Rob Roberson announced Tuesday he will seek Mississippi’s District 43 House of Representatives seat in the 2015 election.
Roberson, a Republican, represented District 37 about a decade ago and previously served as a Starkville alderman.
Qualification for a variety of countywide seats begins Jan. 2, and candidates have up until 5 p.m. March 1 to throw their hat into the race.
Next year’s party primaries are scheduled for Aug. 4, while runoffs will be held 21 days later. The general election will be held Nov. 3. Nov. 24 is reserved for special runoffs as needed.
As redrawn by the Legislature, District 43 includes portions of Oktibbeha — the Adaton, Sturgis and Longview areas — and Winston counties.
