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.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.
