JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Steven Palazzo, R-Biloxi, addressed members of the Jones County business and medical community Thursday at Laurel's South Central Place.

Palazzo criticized the Affordable Healthcare Act and said he wants to see that law repealed. 

He also spoke about the importance of renewing America's space program.

Palazzo is facing two challengers, Ron Vincent and Cindy Burleson, in the upcoming Republican Primary.

"Overwhelmingly, as I travel the district, people thank me for what I'm doing, the fight, the good fight that we're taking on the president and his destructive policies in Washington, D.C., but we have a lot of work yet to do," Palazzo said. 

The primary is on March 13.
