First of all, we are in good position to win on November 4th, 2008. Demand for yard signs and appearences are increasing and the excitement toward the campaign has grown.

The obstacles we must overcome are driven by the media and the Republicans, both expected. The Clarion-Ledger and their sister paper, the Hattiesburg American have decided my opponent won the election in June. The C-L did not record my editorial board for the Internet. The H-A did not invite me at all for an editorial board.

Despite their shallowness, the word about the campaign is getting out and people realize there is a clear difference. When my opponent takes a Pontius Pilate attitude toward the government's role in fixing the economy, and has not even posted the positions he will take on his web site, people understand which candidate is committed to the people of Mississippi and which one is not.

The Republicans, meanwhile, are doing their dead-level best to suppress turnout. They are attacking grassroots groups that are registering record numbers of people. They are trying to target HBCU college students, seeking to challenge their residency. We already have watched their antics as far as when the special election should be held and where it should be placed on the ballot. That is why there will be a great deal of satisfaction on November 4th when all of the GOPers are swept out of office.

People in Mississippi are hurting. The majority will not be fooled by character assassinations and divisive tactics. They want leaders to solve their problems, not create new ones. Therefore, I am optimistic that the people of Mississippi will do what is expected of a fully informed electorate and our campaign will be victorious. We will overcome.

I agree with Mr. Morrow. Especially when you get to areas of the state that are the poorest and most uneducated. For example, one of the biggest political events in my mother's area is the Chocataw county fair. People discuss it for weeks before and weeks after. But most Mississippians want to hear directly from you about those issues which are are passionate. Most believe they can see it in your face if you are telling them the truth or feel it in a handshake. So get out there and have your own informal town hall meetings in school gyms and everywhere you can. The plus side is that the press will show up too. Free advertising to boot.

Henry Morrow says:

I would like to support your campaign. I recently retired from the military and would like to support your campaign.

If you can count on support from biased Mississippi newspapers then you have to rely on totally grass roots efforts to get your message out.

Black radio throughout the state should be used and there is nothing to stop you from traveling all over this state to get your name out there.

Flyers with your photo and five key positions that you will pursue to help all Mississippians will help people know who you are and where you stand.

Everybody doesn't have a computer so all methods both simple and technical should be employed.
