Marcy With Sarah Palin From DC
Bill Marcy traveled to D.C. this weekend for Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ event, which featured Sarah Palin as a keynote speaker. During his time in D.C., Marcy snapped a picture with the former Alaska governor and Vice-Presidential nominee.
Harper and Gill to debate. Rep. Gregg Harper and his Democratic opponent, Joel Gill, are expected to square off at a town-hall in Starkville on September 4th. The event is hosted by the Starkville Tea Party and Sid Salter will serve as moderator. Gill is one of the few Democrats (in the country) that I know of who is appearing at Tea Party sponsored events, but he can certainly use any publicity he can get.
Nunnelee praises special session work. Alan Nunnelee sent out a presser on Friday proclaiming that this recent special session “will have helped a real business create 1,000 real jobs, changing lives and making 1,000 Mississippi families stronger.”
Nunnelee and Travis Childers have been fighting over job creation and spending this past week, and Nunnelee enjoyed using this special session as a difference between the work he has done in the state legislature and the way things are done in Washington:
“Washington can learn something from Mississippi. As your congressman, I will take this common sense approach of creating jobs to Washington. Over the past two years, Nancy Pelosi and her liberal leadership team have wasted over $800 billion in frivolous spending, frightening businesses with future taxes, inflation and onerous regulations.
In Mississippi, we’re not spending outside our means. We’re not passing on an impossible debt to our children. We’re not governing irresponsibly. We’re working on behalf of 1,000 families who will wake up tomorrow with a better future.”
