Libertarian Hampton satisfied with campaign

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Tim Hampton, the Libertarian candidate for the 4th Congressional District, only got about 1% of the vote in Tuesday's general election, but he says he's satisfied with his campaign.

The 26-year-old Hattiesburg native and some of his supporters gathered election night at Caliente Grille in Hattiesburg to watch the returns.

He says he connected with a lot of voters, and he says that should help him if he decides to run for office again.
