Rep. David Norquist (D-Cleveland) will not run for reelection

I just got off of the phone with Rep. David Norquist, the Vice Chair of Ways and Means in the House, and he confirmed an Mississippi Business Journal report that he will not be running for reelection this year.  Norquist, the father of three young boys, has decided that his obligations to them are more important than being in the Legislature.  I can't argue with that, but I will miss having Norquist around.  He was a tireless advocate for his district, his alma mater (Delta State), and working Mississippians.  In addition, there's no current Mississippi politician better at delivering a one-liner than David Norquist.
