Alabama happened… can Mississippi go blue too? Native Mississippian, former Congressman, and business leader Mike Espy officially announced his candidacy for Mississippi’s U.S. Senate seat currently held by retiring Sen. Thad Cochran.
Espy made the announcement in a statement posted on his newly launched website www.espyforsenate.com. A formal announcement and campaign rally will be held in May.
The former Congressman highlighted his track record of success finding common ground, in business and in government, working with people from different points of view and backgrounds.
“If elected to this important position, I will work every day to be a shining example of the positive qualities of our state- and I will work to unify this state like no one before me ever has” said Espy. “There is no more time for disunity and dysfunction. We simply have too much work to do.”
