Rep. Gregg Harper faces minor party opposition

Republican Gregg Harper is the only one of Mississippi’s four congressmen who doesn’t face major party opposition on Nov. 6.

Reform Party candidate John “Luke” Pannell stands between Harper and a third term representing central Mississippi’s 3rd District.
A Pearl resident, the 56-year-old Harper said that he’s focused his efforts on his Energy and Commerce Committee seat, trying to free up oil and gas exploration and ease restrictions on coal-burning power plants.
