Dickey, of Horn Lake, is a former Green Beret who ran as supporter of President Barack Obama, and backed a minimum wage increase, equal pay legislation for women and Medicaid expansion.
Weathers, a Glen resident, previously ran for the state Legislature and Congress, losing races as the Democratic congressional nominee in 1998 and 2002.
