For the first time in eight years, there will be a new state senator for District 27 after the Nov. 4 election. Current Sen. Lowe Finney decided not to run for a third term in order to run against incumbent Jerry Gist for mayor of Jackson next May. The redrawn district now is comprised of Madison, Crockett, Dyer, Lake and Lauderdale counties. The Jackson Sun interviewed three of the four Senate candidates: Republican Ed Jackson, Democrat Randy Lamb and Constitution party member Tim York. Independent candidate James Baxter declined to be interviewed.
