MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A local businessman is hoping to beat the House District 83 incumbent in Tuesday's primary.

Billy Adam Calvert is running against state Rep. Greg Snowden, also the Speaker Pro Tem, in this important House race.

Both Republicans say they have received positive feedback from voters and will be watching election results closely.

"We feel good. We've worked hard. We've knocked on 3800 doors," said Calvert. "I've tried to personally meet as many people as I could. We feel real good about it. Of course, it's up to the voters."

"I have campaigned hard all over the district and have received uniform, positive feedback," said Snowden. "I can't help but feel confident and good. It's in the hands of the voters and we'll see."

District 83 covers Lauderdale County. The winner of the primary does not have an opponent in the November general election.
