MS election on Nov. 3

Don’t forget to vote in the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

I have endorsed Stanley A. Sorey for the newly created circuit judgeship for the 13th Judicial District which covers Simpson, Smith, Covington, and Jasper Counties.

Please contact anyone you know who lives in Simpson, Smith, Covington, or Jasper County to remind them to vote on November 3rd and to ask them to vote for Stanley for Circuit Judge, Place 2 which is the 13th Judicial District.

“I have God on my side,” Democrat nominee for governor Robert Gray said to describe his challenge to incumbent Republican Gov. Phil Bryant. Uhm, right.

Regarding the attorney general’s race: In 2014, Brent Hazzard, the principal of Hazzard Law LLC, gave incumbent AG Jim Hood $10,000. That same year, Hazzard Law LLC reportedly received more than $4.7 million for legal work for Hood’s office in litigation against the chemical company BASF in an alleged price-fixing scheme. Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC gave Hood $1,000 in 2014 and coincidentally received more than $5.4 million in contingency fees from litigation against Standard & Poor’s on behalf of Mississippi.

Mississippi Code § 25-4-105 (the ethics statute) stipulates that, “No public servant shall use his official position to obtain, or attempt to obtain, pecuniary benefit for himself other than that compensation provided for by law, or to obtain, or attempt to obtain, pecuniary benefit for any relative or any business with which he is associated.”

Hood has also been self-destructing this week, bashing popular pro-gun MS and national Republicans and calling those who oppose liberal Democratic initiatives “stupid.” Well, stupid votes count the same as smart ones.

Hood’s Republican opponent, federal prosecutor Mike Hurst, says that “The federal government has given us Obamacare, EPA expansion, gun restrictions, and has eroded our religious liberties. Attorney General Jim Hood and President Obama are both Democrats, so Hood won’t stand up and fight back. But I will.”

It appears that the AG’s race will be a close one.
