Rep. Gene Taylor spoke with the Sun Herald on Monday about several issues, including the upcoming campaign with state Rep. Steven Palazzo. Here are some of the highlights from that piece:
– Taylor said his “20 years of campaigning and getting to know voters” who make up MS-04 would give him the edge over Palazzo.
– Taylor said he believes the low turnout in last week’s primary shows a lack of interest on the Republican side: “The fact that very few people, even in the winner’s home box, took the time to vote… I do take that as a good sign. If I had seen 100,000 people vote in the Republican primary, I would have looked at this thing differently than 25,000 people.”
– Taylor made a couple notes on the name ID factor, which he obviously has a big lead on over Palazzo at this point.
– Taylor did, however, add that he wasn’t taking the race lightly: “I have never taken anything for granted and won’t take anything for granted this time.”
