Lt. Governor hopeful Jamie Franks campaigns in Hattiesburg

The Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor says he's being unfairly targeted as a liberal by the GOP.  Representative Jamie Franks of Tupelo says Republicans are running negative ads against him because they are scared.

"They're calling Jamie Franks a liberal.  How does it make me a liberal when I've gotten an A-rating with the N.R.A.?  How does it make me a liberal when I've banned same-sex marriages in this state?  How does it make me a liberal when I voted to ban abortion?  I've stood for Mississippi values over my 12 years in the House of Representatives and I want to do that as the next Lt. Governor," Franks said. 

Franks was in Hattiesburg today to help publicize a new planned community called, "Lily Valley."
