Palazzo and Nunnelee Win Primaries

June 1, 2010

State Rep. Steven Palazzo will be the Republican nominee for the Fourth District to take on Rep. Gene Taylor winning about 57 percent of the vote against Joe Tegerdine. In the First, State Sen. Alan Nunnelee escaped a runoff winning about 51 percent of the vote in a three-way battle with Henry Ross and Angela McGlowan. Ross won about 33 percent with McGlowan getting around 16. Nunnelee will take on Rep. Travis Childers. We will look at these elections and the upcoming challenges the Republicans face in detail tomorrow but for now you can see how everything went down tonight with our live blog from the evening.

    Yall Jackson RINOs got what you wanted. Good Job way to screw the Tea Parties and spend more money against Tea Party Candidates than against Gene Taylor…

    Yea, that is the attitude to have, Biloxi. Last I checked, voters in Jackson did not have a vote in MS-04. Tegerdine ran a good campaign, but came up short.

    Lets rally around the ONLY conservative candidate left, Steven Palazzo, and defeat Gene Taylor.

      Rally all we can but the sad fact is that Palazzo will be chewed up and spit out by Taylor! He won’t be able to avoid debate and public appearances with Gene! Sad night for the MS-04! Bryant cut his own throat and threw the MS-04 constituents to the lions (i.e. Pelosi and crew)!!!

      Wow, I’ve got to get out of this state. Mississippians really are dull.

      I bet a monkey could win in Mississippi against a qualified candidate, as long as the monkey was born here and the other guy wasn’t.

        Bye, nobody invited you to move here. We got along fine before you blew into town. We will be fine when you leave. It does not sound like you want to defeat Taylor and the Pelosi congress. It sounds like you just want Tegerdine to be
        Congressman. Now that he has lost, you want Taylor to win so you can get another shot in two years.

          Defeating Taylor and the Pelosi Congress just isn’t good enough for me.

          Replacing the big government loyalist that has a (D) beside his name with the big government loyalist that has an (R) beside his name hasn’t worked in the past and won’t work in the future.

          And as far as being invited here, you’re correct, I wasn’t invited to Mississippi. I was ordered here by the Department of Defense.

          I bet you would enjoy telling the Marine fighting in Afghanistan, who calls Mississippi home, he’s not a Mississippian because he wasn’t born here.

          Or the Air Force Pararescueman flying his helicopter towards the enemy bullets in Iraq to rescue a downed pilot, he’s not a Mississippian because he wasn’t born here.

          Or the Mississippi National Guardsman that wears the Mississippi flag on his sleeve, he’s not a Mississippian, because he wasn’t born here.

            Nah, he’s not telling all them that. He’s just telling the people who are whining about their canidate losing an election and threatening to leave the state to go on and make good on that promise. :-)

    Ms dawg the next time around taylor will be facing a primary of his own. Also the repubs are about to get an infusion of new blood. It’s time for the idiot games to end. The country can’t afford any more of this stupidity.

    Just remember folks, Steven Palazzo voted to make it legal for the Government to steal your land.

      And also remember folks, the founding fathers did the same when they included the “takings clause” in the fifth amendment to the US constitution which authorizes eminent domain.

        I’m always amazed at the ways people find to pervert the Constitution.

        The Government stealing land and giving it to a private business to build a manufacturing plant or hotel is not “public use”.

        • Reality permalink

          If it is in the greater public interest to be given to private business, then so be it.

          Completely constitutional.

          You can’t say you want to support and defend the constitution, and then pick and choose and ignore the parts you don’t like.

            Wow, I don’t even know how to respond to that one.

            What you just described there sounds like a big government socialist police state.

            What he described is the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution.

            No it is not.

    The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution in its entirety:

    “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

    I especially like the “nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law” part.

    Look, the fact is that Steven Palazzo twice voted against a reform bill that would limit the State of Mississippi’s ability to seize privately owned land and give it to private businesses.

    Voters will decide if this who they want representing them in Washington DC.
