3rd Congressional District candidate Whit Hughes issued a response regarding Governor Phil Bryant’s endorsement of opponent Michael Guest. The two Republicans are in a runoff June 26.
“Voters will have a choice on June 26th between a businessman and a career politician. We have different backgrounds and viewpoints which is exactly why Mississippians in the Third District deserve a debate about issues such as job creation, protecting our constitutional rights, stopping illegal immigration, and changing the way we are spending and borrowing money in Washington, D.C.”
Hughes is a healthcare executive for Baptist Healthcare. He has a background in economic development and served as Finance Director for former Governor Haley Barbour’s 2003 campaign. The party stalwart played both baseball and basketball for Mississippi State University. He played in the Final Four College Championship game during the team’s storied appearance in 1996.
