Meridian Star Editorial, 1/14/8

There are seven Republicans and two Democrats running in the primary for the 3rd Congressional District, the seat on the U.S. House that is being vacated by Chip Pickering. Since it can be hard to decide between so many candidates, the Star has conducted editorial boards so readers can get to know their candidates a little better before voting in the March 11 primary.

Today’s editorial boards feature two Republicans who have been getting a lot of attention in the race: State Senator Charlie Ross, who you may remember from the recent lieutenant governor’s campaign, and attorney Gregg Harper, who is running for office for the first time.
