The Democratic Party nominee for congress for the 4th District was campaigning in Hattiesburg Thursday. Gulfport's Matt Moore met voters at the Cloverleaf Mall during lunchtime. 

He's self-employed and also ran against Republican incumbent Steven Palazzo in 2012. 

He supports raising the minimum wage, equal pay and Obamacare and says he'll support policies based on their merit, not party affiliation.  

"Folks have been very vocal, all the way from Jones County to the coastline, from Marion all the way to Wayne County," Moore said. "They're tired of this do-nothing congress. They're tired of a representative who claims to represent them, but yet provides no assistance on either job creation or navigating the waters of new laws that have been in place," he said. 

Moore will be back on the Coast campaigning this weekend.
