Bryant, Ross Stump in Meridian

Meridian was a focus of pre-election day campaigning by two Republican candidates for lieutenant governor.

State Auditor Phil Bryant talked with voters at Bill Gordon and Sons Barber Shop.

Bryant said it's important that voters participate in Tuesday's primaries.

"There's no better place in Mississippi than right here in Bill's Barber Shop to help wrap this campaign up. So we're getting out the voters. Its called 'GOTV', get out that vote," said Bryant.

After leaving Meridian, Bryant went on to a campaign event in DeSoto County.

State Sen. Charlie Ross said Mississippi needs a lieutenant governor who has a record of standing up for what he believes.

"And that's my record, whether it's tort reform or Jessica's law or standing by Gov. Barbour. That's who I am," said Ross. "And that's what Mississippi needs going forward. We need a strong, conservative lieutenant governor."

The winner of the Republican primary will meet Democrat Jamie Franks in the Nov. 6 general election.
