Democrats gather for Labor Day picnic

Democrats in Diamondhead held an old-fashioned Labor Day picnic to energize the party. Democrats came from around Hancock County to celebrate the holiday and talk politics….

…”I think it’s important for Democrats to do this around the state because for 20 years this is what Republicans have done, and they’ve beaten us at this game and it shows,” said State Representative David Baria. “They’ve invested in the field for years and we can take a lesson from them. It’s about grassroots, school boards, city elections, supervisors and getting people engaged.”…

…State Representative Jeramey Anderson of Moss Point traveled from Jackson County to support the Diamondhead group. Rumor has it, Anderson may provide a Democratic challenge to fourth district Congressman Steven Palazzo in 2018.

“I’ve thought about it. I’ve positioned myself to take advantage if I so chose. I’m really thinking about it and I’ll decide soon,” Anderson said.
