SD 36: If you want to know more about Republican Jimmy Strong, you can check out his campaign website.

SD 36: Albert Butler received the official backing of the Democratic Party today, as they asked supporters to volunteer and/ or make donations to the state party. Butler is a Claiborne County supervisor.

MS-01: The Democrats are out with a new attack on the three GOP candidates in the race. They want to know if they support privatizing social security. Here is what a DCCC staff member said: “Mississippi seniors can’t afford to let a candidate for Congress and his cronies in Washington gamble their hard-earned Social Security funds on the stock market. Mississippi families deserve to know if any of these candidates has sold them out to big bankers on Wall Street by backing this dangerous social security privatization. They can’t run for Congress without making clear where they stand on this issue that is so important to Mississippi seniors.”

MS-01: The Republicans are out with an attack of their own going after Childers for his stimulus vote, which he has yet to distance himself from. Today is the one year anniversary of Obama signing the stimulus bill. At the time, Childers said it would create or “save” 3-4 million jobs, and the unemployment rate in Mississippi would drop by 1.6 percent.

MS-01: Alan Nunnelee has his luncheon fundraiser with former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee today in Tupelo.

MS-04: The entrance of State Rep. Steven Palazzo into the GOP primary made its way to The Hill website yesterday.

MS-04: That story in The Hill did not mention Joe Tegerdine, who is also running. As a result, Tegerdine said this on Facebook: “No surprise here? I have been in the race for 10 months and the NRCC has never publicly acknowledged our campaign… but they don’t waste time for one of their hand picked candidates!”

2010 House: Former state GOP Chairman Jim Herring looks at the “Party of No” label, Rep. Paul Ryan’s “Road Map for America’s Future,” and offers advice to Congressional Republicans in his latest blog post.

    Joe Tegerdine is the one to watch. Folks are flocking to him and recognize that he is the real deal. He means what he says and says what he means. Plus, more importantly, he is the first Republican who can actually beat the current (10 TERMS) incumbent. Check him out.

    I met Joe Tegerdine shortly after the first MS Tea Party. I believe he is the real deal, a citizen trying to change how things are done in DC. He has my support. His website is:

    I’ve listened to Mr. Tegerdine several times. He wins hands down.

    I met Joe Tegerdine for the first time tonight. He was very impressive. He has common sense conservative values, real business and fiscal sense and can look you in the eye as he talks to you.
