Project Vote Smart is putting pressure on candidates across the country and here in Mississippi to take its “Political Courage Test.”

The test was created by Project Vote Smart…a non-profit organization created 16 years ago by some frustrated Americans who wanted politicians to openly share their position on key issues.

As of close of business Monday, January 25th, only 7 of our 26 candidates running for congress and the senate in Mississippi had taken the test. They are Democrats Shawn O’Hara, Marshall Coleman, Joel Gill and Republicans James Broadwater, Gregory Hatcher, Charlie Ross and John McKay, III.
