Winston County Journal, 2/7/8

With seven Republicans and two Democrats running in the primary for the Third Congressional District seat, the race should turn into a heated contest as the March 11 primary approaches.

Since most of Winston County is represented by the Third Congressional District seat being vacated by Chip Pickering, the Republican Club of Winston County has invited four Republican candidates to spar off in a debate on Monday, February 11.

Candidates Gregg Harper, David Landrum, Charlie Ross and John Rounsaville will debate the issues of the area with Dr. Marty Wiseman, Director of the John C. Stennis Institute of Government and Professor of Political Science at Mississippi State University, as the moderator.
