Governor before election

Martin S. Conner

Elected Governor

Hugh L. White

The 1935 Mississippi gubernatorial election took place on November 5, 1935, in order to elect the Governor of Mississippi. Incumbent Democrat Martin S. Conner was term-limited, and could not run for reelection to a second term. As was common at the time, the Democratic candidate ran unopposed in the general election so therefore the Democratic primary was the real contest, and winning the primary was considered tantamount to election.

Democratic primary

No candidate received a majority in the Democratic primary, which featured 5 contenders, so a runoff was held between the top two candidates. The runoff election was won by Mayor of Columbia Hugh L. White, who defeated former U.S. Representative Paul B. Johnson, Sr.
