BEAUMONT, MS (WDAM) -

The Democratic Party candidate for Congress in the 4th District campaigned at a state festival in Perry County Saturday.     

Mark Gladney met voters at the 29th annual Mississippi Pecan Festival.

Gladney is running against Republican incumbent Steven Palazzo.

He said he enjoys the opportunity to do some old-fashioned, face-to-face campaigning.

"Out here, being able to actually talk to someone and actually look them in the eye, that's what Southern politics is supposed to be about," Gladney said. "It's supposed to be about where you can judge someone and ask those tough questions and they actually have to answer them, instead of putting out a media release or a press release that they've vetted through everybody." 

The general election is Nov. 8.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
