Dispatch Staff Report



The Mississippi Secretary of State's office published a list of late candidates and office-holders, including two from Starkville, who were late to file campaign finance reports on Friday. 


The deadline for campaign finance reports was 5 p.m. Wednesday. 


Former District 38 Rep. Tyrone Ellis (D-Starkville) and District 38 Candidate Lisa Wynn are both listed as having filed late reports. 


Wynn unsuccessfully sought Ellis' seat, losing to current District 38 Rep. Cheikh Taylor (D-Starkville). Wynn said she will file her termination report on Monday. Ellis did not seek re-election, and retired from his seat in the summer. He also said he'll file his report next week. 


Secretary of State spokesperson Leah Rupp-Smith said the report includes former candidates or office holders because they have to close out accounts with termination reports. 


"Any candidate that has a balance has to zero out that account and file a termination report," Smith said. "That's why you see a lot of names on the list who are past candidates or past office holders."
