Four candidates are vying to represent the Republican Party in the race for Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District. Two of those candidates are well-known (incumbent Rep. Steven Palazzo and former Democrat Rep. Gene Taylor) while the other two (Tom Carter and Ron Vincent) are lesser known.
Paul Hampton reports in Reading the Tea Party’s tea leaves in District 4 that these lesser known candidates may have caused a splinter in the Tea Party support that could weigh heavily on the June 3rd Primary. Ron Vincent received the early endorsement of the South Mississippi Tea Party but that was recently retracted. Hampton opines just how such a split could affect Primary especially if Tom Carter should receive Tea Party endorsement.
The Blessings of Liberty was unable to find the endorsement or retraction on the South Mississippi Tea Party Facebook Page or their webpage but Y’all Politics also announced it today. The South Mississippi Tea Party webpage does indicate that Tom Carter will be at their next meeting on April 21st.
