NEW: Velesha P. Williams, a Democrat running for Mississippi governor, told me that party Chair Bobby Moak is ignoring her candidacy as a black woman.

Moak denied the charges & told me to speak to black legislators he's friends with. I did. #MSelex
"I'm calling out Mr. Moak for his failure to acknowledge & respect the African American women running statewide" & "his inability to respond to any of my phone calls or my emails..."

She's been trying to reach him since December, she said. #MSelex
"Ask any of my colleagues who happen to be of the minority persuasion to look at my record as (MS House) minority leader," said MS Dem Party Chair Bobby Moak."

"Call some of my colleagues who happen to be black who were in the Legislature." #MSelex #MSleg
MS Rep. John Hines, who is black, defended Chairman Moak: "He valued my opinion as a young legislator, as an African American working with a Caucasian in an environment that has not always been open to opposite points of view and ideas." #MSGov #MSleg
