Hood promotes #EqualPayDay
Today is #EqualPayDay. Mississippi is 1 of 2 states that hasn’t passed a law prohibiting gender-based pay equity discrimination. It’s wrong for Mississippi women to be paid 73% of what men make and for women of color to be paid be paid even less. Mississippi women deserve better! pic.twitter.com/ZfL5lYUola

WDAM – AG candidate tours the Pine Belt
Attorney General candidate Andy Taggart was in the Pine Belt today as he continued his state-wide bus tour.
Over the past three decades, Taggart has served as a practicing attorney and counsel to many of the state’s top leaders. For the past seven years, spurred by a tragic, personal loss, Taggart has served as a passionate crusader among young people and families battling illicit drugs. He believes the fight against drugs, and the predators who profit from others’ destruction, should be top priority for law enforcement, led by the state’s next Attorney General.

I signed the discharge petition to demand a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. I join almost 200 of my House colleagues in standing up for newborns who survive horrific abortions. This should not even be up for debate.#LetUsVote #EndInfanticide https://t.co/6wIBvpSUVh

LAUREL LEADER CALL – 4 locals start political consulting firm
Right Way Strategies, LLC is a new political consulting firm started in Jones County. The firm was founded by Richard Conrad, Jack Fairchilds, Kelvin “Dawg” Smith and Jerel Wade. These four helped plan and organize various political events around the area, from state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s announcement of a run for U.S. Senate to a candidate forum for the 2017 special election for State Representative for District 89...
…“When thinking of forming Right Way Strategies, getting us four together was the easy decision,” Smith said. “This group has the experience and has been through a lot together. The heartbeat of conservatism in Mississippi is right here in Jones County, and we have Chris McDaniel to thank for that.”
Fairchilds has been involved in several statewide campaigns and every campaign for McDaniel dating back to his first run for state Senate. He also was the host of the long running Right Side Radio Program.
