HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A nationally-known political strategist and commentator who was in Hattiesburg Thursday said she's closely watching the Mississippi GOP Senate runoff between Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel.

Donna Brazile, who ran Al Gore's presidential campaign 14 years ago, was keynote speaker for the Power Forward Business, Supplier & Contractor Expo at the Lake Terrace Convention Center.

Brazile said the winner of that race will have an advantage in November.

"I encourage everybody to get out and vote, I encourage people to participate in the political process and whoever wins this race will have a competitive edge in the fall," she said.

Brazile served briefly as interim chair of the Democratic National Committee and she's a frequent guest on ABC's Sunday morning news program This Week.
