Giles Ward for Senate

Sen. Giles Ward is a solid conservative who has earned a second term in the Mississippi Legislature.

The best hope of continuing Gov. Haley Barbour’s legacy of sound fiscal policies that won’t raise taxes hinges on sending Republicans like Sen. Ward back to Jackson.

While party affiliation isn’t as important at Mississippi courthouses or among friends, it matters at the Capitol and that’s why we draw a distinction in this race.

Ward has stood firm with Gov. Barbour on spending and prevented raids on the rainy day fund during tough economic times. He’s worked hard for compromises that haven’t raised taxes or relied on one-time monies to pay recurring expenses.
