GOP Opens Meridian Headquarters

Lauderdale County republicans have opened a campaign headquarters in Meridian. It's located next to Jean's Restaurant at 2118 Front Street.

Officials say it will be the place to find yard signs and bumper stickers for Republican candidates, including the presidential ticket of McCain/Palin, Sen. Roger Wicker, and congressional nominee Gregg Harper.

"The rights and liberties that we have as Americans are in the balance here," said Scott Carmichael, chair of the Republican Executive Committee. "Whoever is elected president is going to select the Supreme Court. They could have, if Obama's elected, they could have a super majority in the House and Senate and in the White House, which the last time they had that was in 1933 and 1965. And that's a very dangerous thing for this country, to be able, to have a one-party system. We need a to have a two-party system where all of the people in this country are represented."

The Republican headquarters will be staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Organizers are looking for volunteers to canvass neighborhoods this weekend. The GOP will also be offering rides to the polls on election day, Nov. 4. Call 601-917-1600 for more information.
