Yet another Republican has announced that he will be running for the 3rd Congressional District nomination, vying for the seat that will soon be vacated by Chip Pickering.

This week’s new candidate is James Broadwater, a former Southern Baptist minister, of Flowood.

Broadwater said in a press release Wednesday that he wants to “end all abortion in America” and “stop the flow of illegal immigrants into our country, and punish the business owners who hire them.” He also made statements against gay marriage and for a “strong and ready military” that is “free from the social experimentation of liberals.”
