“Following discussions with democratic leaders within and others outside the Legislature, I will file for the Senate seat in District 19 and look forward to working collaboratively to effectively serve my constituents. I do so acknowledging the greats who have preceded me: Senators Gail Bray, Sue Reents, Betsy Dunklin, Mike Burkett and Nicole LeFavour,”she said in a press-release.

LeFavour, who  has served for terms in the State Legislature has given her endorsement to Buckner-Webb,”I leave the Senate excited to know that Representative Cherie Buckner-Webb will seek election to my seat this year. Cherie brings a huge depth of knowledge, passion and power to the Senate.”
