JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi House voted 102-13 Wednesday to pass a bill that would set rules about how candidates statewide can spend campaign contributions.

A yes vote was to approve the bill, while a no vote opposed that action. Voting yes were 70 Republicans and 32 Democrats. Voting no were 10 Democrats and three Republicans. One Democrat voted present, while five Democrats and one Republican did not vote.
