A former state legislator says he's weighing a bid for the chairmanship of the Mississippi Democratic Party.

Jamie Franks of Mooreville, an ex-state representative who has a law practice in Tupelo, told a Lee County Democratic Party convention this past weekend that he may run for the chairmanship. Franks was an unsuccessful candidate for lieutenant governor last year.

The state party's current chairman, former U.S. Rep. Wayne Dowdy of McComb, has said he will not run again for the post.

Franks said the party needs somebody young and energetic to lead the party.
