Meridian, Mississippi A Democratic candidate for longtime Senator Thad Cochran's seat wants voters to know there is more than one primary coming up June 3rd.
Former First District Congressman Travis Childers was in Meridian Tuesday. The Democrat from Booneville says he's traveling the State talking to voters. Childers says the issues are being neglected due to all the controversy between Republicans Senator Thad Cochran and State Senator Chris McDaniel. But, Childers says, this campaign isn't about political parties. "I think our country is so hung up on left and right, and it's really not about left and right," said Childers. "It's about right and wrong, at the end of the day, and I do know the difference in those two. "
Childers has three opponents on the Democratic ballot. William Bond Compton, Jr., of Meridian, Jonathan Rawl, and Bill Marcy.
