An important congressional race is on the ballot in Mississippi's third district.
A crowded field will be battling it out on the Republican side.
The candidates in that race have been spending a lot of time in Meridian in the last several weeks.
John Rounsaville, a former aide to Cong. Chip Pickering, visited Friday, at Jean's restaurant in downtown Meridian.
"What I'm sharing with voters across the district, with Congressman Pickering, and also as policy advisor to Governor Barbour, I spent the last ten years serving this district and Lauderdale County," said Rounsaville. "That's the message I'm getting out to voters, is experience. "
Rounsaville will face off against six other men in that Republican primary, Bill Marcy, Gregg Harper, Gregory Hatcher, David Landrum, Charlie Ross, and James Broadwater.
Two Democrats face off in that primary, Joel Gill and Randy Eads.
