We have primary election today for all statewide offices and several local offices. Just to give an indication of the political climate in south Mississippi, almost every ad for statewide office (except for Jim Hood, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor) is something along the lines of “I support President Trump more than my opponent! Vote for me!” It’s surreal. We have a state senator running for Secretary of State. His opponent has run ads “outing” him as having donated to a “Dump Trump” group in the presidential primaries. The ad goes on to state how this group and this Senator tried to “steal” the nomination from Trump at the Convention. There are absolutely NO ads stating what the opponents qualifications are for office or what his platform is … he just supports Trump.
