I got blasted by comments from my last post. For the record, I would support Cliff Brown if I lived in that district. Brown is a solid conservative and an honorable person. I would be proud to have him as my state senator (Dean Kirby is my state senator and he has done a great job.).
I will be the first to tell you I am not familiar with the politics of other counties--including Simpson County. This is why I welcome comments from readers in other counties. I know Perry Lee's district extends outside of Rankin County and Rankin County is just a small portion of that district.
I was not aware of Lee's background and his voting record on all the issues. If he is from the county club wing of the GOP then we don't need him. From what I have read from the comments, he's out of touch with the little guy.
I apologize to all those I offended. I guess I'm not familiar with local politics outside of Rankin County and it showed. I had no idea there was so much disenchantment with Sen. Lee.
For the record, I definitely do NOT want Cliff Brown to lose and the article was not written to convey I wanted him to lose. I was pointing out the difficulty of throwing out an incumbent. I also pointed out the issues where the incumbents are vulnerable. I hope on August 7Th (providing there is no Democratic opponent) I can call Cliff Brown "Senator Brown."
