Mississippi is the poorest state in the nation. Our roads are in disrepair, our unemployment is high, our coast still hasn't recovered from Katrina, and our state government has a hard time finding the money to pay for essential services. If our state is going to crawl out of this hole, we'll have to fight hard to get federal help.
I've been writing legislation for 25 years, and I know how to get money to projects that need it. If you send me to Congress I will fight aggressively to bring worthwhile projects to our state.
