Candidates sound off at Conservative Coalition meeting

Campaign season kicked off with political fireworks as right wing candidates gathered on Tuesday at the Madison County Conservative Coalition in preparation for the primary election in August.

Mississippi State Senate candidate Bill Billingsley and incumbent Will Longwitz spoke at the event in competition for the District 25 seat. Joel Bomgar, a candidate for District 58 of the Mississippi House of Representatives, was also in attendance.

Bomgar will run against Bruce Bartley, whose absence did not go unnoticed. The final speaker was Cory Wilson, a fellow house hopeful who has run unopposed for District 73 since his opponent dropped out earlier this month.
