McGlowan’s Eventful Day in Hernando
Angela McGlowan made the fifth stop of her five day campaign kickoff tour with a visit to the Desoto County courthouse in Hernando on Friday. But as the Commercial Appeal and Desoto Times Tribune both report, this routine stop didn’t go quite as well as expected.
Both before and during her speech, the gun registration issue came up. According to the Desoto Times, McGlowan said a man approached her wagging his finger in her face in what she described as a very hostile manner. The Commercial Appeal says an Olive Branch resident waved a document in McGlowan’s face.
The Desoto Times also said she was confronted by hecklers, who were later identified as supporters of Alan Nunnelee.
In response to these events, McGlowan said, “I don’t mind if people ask me questions, but do it in a peaceful way. If people don’t know where I am coming from, they should ask questions. The only way we can have transparency is through debate. But not by approaching me and doing things in a hostile way.”
McGlowan also said that “dirty politics” were being played in the race, which she condemns saying she is going to run an “honest campaign.” She also said she hoped their would soon be debates for the GOP primary.
