Mississippi third district congressional candidate David Landrum Friday responded to an allegation made by an opponent. Earlier this week, fellow Republican John Rounsaville said Landrum had not voted since 2000.
Landrum's campaign released records proving that he voted by affidavit in both the primary election and the general election in the 2003 gubernatorial race in Rankin County.
Rounsaville also had criticized Landrum for donating to the gubernatorial campaign of Democrat Ronnie Musgrove. Landrum said he donated to both Musgrove and Barbour in 2003, and voted for Barbour.
Newscenter 11 contacted Landrum's campaign for comment Wednesday, after Rounsaville held a news conference on this issue, and reported Landrum's acknowledgment of donating to both Musgrove and Barbour.
Landrum's campaign also explained the candidate learned in the 2003 election that he was not properly registered, after moving from Hinds County to Madison County, and cast an affidavit ballot.
