GOP’s Palazzo says he’s ‘solid vote’ for south Miss. congressional district; Dem disagrees

wo years ago, Republican Steven Palazzo unseated longtime Democratic Rep. Gene Taylor to win south Mississippi’s 4th District congressional seat.

This year, Palazzo is being challenged by three candidates running low-budget campaigns, including a Democrat who was a late replacement for the original nominee.

Palazzo, 42, of Biloxi, says he has been “a solid vote for Mississippi” as a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He’s also a subcommittee chairman on the House Science and Technology Committee, which handles matters affecting NASA and Stennis Space Center in Hancock County.
