Democrat Gary Houston held a campaign kickoff and voter registration drive at Highland Park. Houston is running for House of Representatives District 83. Houston's campaign manager tells Newscenter 11 that Houston and his team are confident about November's general election.
"Gary is a man that's for the people," campaign manager Kim Houston says. "He believes that we should continue to make strides for family. Also to end partisan politics, invest more in education, and just make Mississippi, Meridian, Lauderdale County, and Clarke County all that it can be."
Houston will face Republican Incumbent Greg Snowden and independent Sam Thompson in November's general election.
