Bubba Carpenter: I Have Tried To Run A Positive Campaign
Here is a recent mailer from Rep. Bubba Carpenter, the Republican running for re-election in his Northeast Mississippi House seat. You may remember his opponent, Thomas McCarley, whose ‘Honor Your Promise’ email was sent around the Tishomingo county school system, but he failed to edit the basic “Senator/ Representative” choice in the template from the Democratic group. I’ve heard other Democratic groups like “KIDS PAC” have also been involved in trying to defeat Carpenter.
This led to the following mailer from the incumbent:
House District 1 is in the very Northeast corner of the state, borders both Alabama and Tennessee, and runs west into Alcorn county and south to Belmont. Carpenter defeated incumbent Democrat Rickey Cummings four years ago. As of the October 10 CFR, Carpenter had raised over $21,000 with about $17,000 cash on hand; not a huge total for an incumbent Republican but better than his opponent. McCarley has raised around $14,000 and has $10,000 in the bank.
