Gunn Speaks in Meridian

Rep. Philip Gunn

Meridian, Miss. The speaker of the Mississippi House was the featured guest for Business Before Hours Tuesday in Meridian.

Rep. Philip Gunn of Clinton has spoken out about his party needing to unify in the wake of a divisive U.S. Senate primary.

Gunn says he has been out-of-town since Chris McDaniel took the next step and filed a court challenge of his loss to Thad Cochran.

"I haven't really kept up with where it stands in the court system," said Gunn. "But I have full confidence the court is going to deal with the evidence and it'll turn out the way it turns out."

Gunn has previously said the GOP should unite and focus on the real enemies of out-of-control spending, government dependency, poor education, and attacks on religious freedom, rather than each other.
