Anderson won election in the special election for Mississippi House of Representatives District 110. The seat was vacant following Billy Broomfield's (D) election as Mayor of Moss Point. Anderson faced Tyres Autrey, Mitch Ellerby, Aneice R. Liddell and Anne A. McMillion in the special election, which took place on November 5, 2013. As no candidate received more than fifty percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Lidell and Anderson - met in a runoff election on November 26, which Anderson won.[3][4][5][6][7][8]
