Voters weigh in on what’s motivating them for the Mississippi primary electionsIf you ask folks what’s driving them to the polls for primary election day, you’ll get a mixed bag of answers. For Democrats, they want change.

“We already know who we’re going to vote for and everything,” said Barbara Williams. “I think people are ready for a change. We’ve been kind of going through since the last election. We just want to get out and try to make a difference. It’s an overall feeling. I want to see some change and some different people.”

Some Republicans want to keep those seats red but say this about the primaries:

“I don’t pay too much attention to the other side because I know there’s no chance I’m going to vote that way,” explained Adam Sturdivant. “As a Christian-conservative and someone who will vote for President Trump, it’s not the most exciting thing in the world, but I will go out and support him.”

DAILY JOURNAL – Tupelo lawmaker files bill changing requirements for liquor stores to host ‘sampling events’

Shane Aguirre

A local lawmaker has filed a bill in the Mississippi Legislature that would revise the regulations currently in place for a “tasting” or “sampling event” hosted by a liquor store.

State Rep. Shane Aguirre, a Republican from Tupelo, filed House Bill 1427, which would allow package liquor stores to serve no more than eight ounces of wine to one person and no more than four ounces of distilled spirits to one person at a sampling event.

Aguirre said the current version of the legislation likely won’t be the final version of the bill and there’s some discussion among other lawmakers to amend the proposed law to reduce the amount of liquor served at the sampling event.
