DuPree Certified As Mayor Of Hattiesburg

The votes have all been tallied in Hattiesburg and this time, both candidates agree: Mayor Johnny DuPree has won a fourth term over challenger Dave Ware.
The Hattiesburg American reports that the final margin was 202 votes - 7,507 for DuPree, 7,305 for Ware.
DuPree's supporters gathered at the City Hall steps on Saturday, chanting "Who dat!" and "Four more years!"
Ware congratulated DuPree and said he won't contest the results.
He challenged a 37-vote loss in June; all 580 absentee ballots were thrown out.
Federal and state observers oversaw Tuesday's voting and the count that ended Saturday.
Ware said he decided against challenging the results both because of the increased oversight and because he doesn't want to "bog down" the city in another election fight.
