Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Chaney Wins Republican Nomination

August 7, 2015

Second-term incumbent Mike Chaney of Vicksburg has won the Republican nomination for insurance commissioner.

He held off a challenge Tuesday from John Mosley, a body shop owner from Clinton. Mosley campaigned, in part, by saying insurance companies have gotten away with paying for less-than-perfect replacement parts to repair damaged vehicles.

Chaney supporters criticized Mosley for hiring a Democratic trial lawyer in 2013 to sue insurance companies over replacement parts.

No Democrat is running for insurance commissioner this year.

The Reform Party’s Johnny McLeod of Hattiesburg will be on the November ballot.
