Democrats and Republicans working together? Here’s why that’s happening in Harrison County

“The pressing issue that has united our two committees in a completely nonpartisan way relates to the appropriation of all BP settlement funds received by the state of Mississippi due to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster of 2010,” the Democratic Executive Committee said in a press release. “Today, the Chairpersons of the two Harrison County, Mississippi, major political party governing committees hereby wish to announce that they, and their memberships, have come together in order to work together on behalf of the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast.” Executive committee members said they’ll join the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce in its efforts to sway lawmakers Wednesday night at the Coast Legislative Reception and Thursday in the halls of the Capitol.   Sun Herald 1/10/18
