LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - United States Representative Michael Guest stopped in Meridian Thursday while visiting the 3rd Congressional District.

Guest said he was touring some of the damage left behind by the EF-2 tornado earlier this month. The Republican said he visited the town of Enterprise and met with residents who were affected by the storm.

Getting financial aid for cleanup has been the focus on recent weeks and Guest says he wants to make sure they are assisted.

“We were in Enterprise touring some of the damage from the recent tornado. I was able to sit down with Sheriff Kemp and talk to him about some of the things they’re doing in Quitman. Had a real good meeting with him and some of the local community leaders there,” Guest says.

Guest also visited the hospitals to discuss healthcare. Guest is facing James Tulp in the Republican primary set for March 10th.
