Mississippi 3rd: Gregg Harper for Congress


Tuesday’s Republican run-off offers voters in the Mississippi Third District an interesting choice for the seat being vacated by the retiring Chip Pickering. Gregg Harper and Charlie Ross were the top two finishers in last month’s primary, with my first choice, David Landrum, finishing third.

Madison County Journal offers this endorsement of Mr. Harper:

gregg_harper_family.jpgHarper is a fiscal conservative who wants to put an end to the wasteful Washington spending. He believes in a financially strong America.
He has been an advocate of the Second Amendment and is quick to tell you he is a lifelong member of the NRA.
Harper has also spoken out against illegal immigration, as did most every other Republican candidate.
He is a strong advocate of public schools, educating his own children in them.
Harper is personable and we believe will be more accessible, but he’ll need to surround himself with good people knowledgeable about important issues like transportation, education and economic development.

Ross is an expert in the practice of slash and burn politics, and made quite a few enemies in his recent loss to Phil Bryant in last year’s Lt. Governor’s race. He emerged from that race, however, with sufficient name recognition to give him the leg up in this race, but not enough to prevent him from running another dirty campaign, this time targeting David Landrum.

Ross also earned the endorsement of the nefarious Club for growth.net, chaired by Arkansas billionaire Steve Stephens, and whose major contributors include Massachussets financier and Mitt Romney supporter John Childs. Their record of campaign smear and distortion make them a logical ally for the Charlie Ross campaign.

I, for one, will never vote for a candidate who accepts the endorsement of the Club for Growth.

Good luck, Gregg Harper. I think you’ll make a fine Congressman. You’ve asked for our prayers, and you’ve got them. You’ve also asked for donations. Go here to contribute.

  1. I wonder how aggressively Mr. Harper will be towards not only voting for, but actively supporting illegal alien legislation.

    Our country needs a strong non-nonsense leader. We already have too many career polititians in Washington looking out for their and their contributors interests rather than doing what they were elected for…… doing the peoples work.

  2. You are so right, Roger.

    Mr. Harper is saying all of the right things on illegal immigration.

    By the way, state officials expect a relatively light turnout tomorrow, so every vote is very important. If you live in the 3rd District, please get to the polls and support Gregg Harper.

    Thanks for dropping by.
