MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - State Sen. Kelvin Butler of McComb says he will run for Pike County chancery clerk rather than for a fourth term in the Legislature.

Butler, a Democrat, will be running for the office being vacated by incumbent Doug Touchstone. The new term begins in January.

Butler tells the Enterprise-Journal (https://bit.ly/1GoCPah ) that he wants to serve in public office closer to home.

Butler is chairman of the Senate Labor Committee. He has served in the Senate for 12 years and was an alderman in Magnolia for 12 years.

The Senate District 38 post includes portions of Adams, Amite, Pike and Walthall counties and all of Wilkinson County.

Candidates have until Feb. 27 to qualify. Party primaries are Aug. 4 and the general election is Nov. 3.
