(JACKSON, MS) - Democratic candidate for the United States Senate, Rep. David Baria (D-Bay St. Louis) responds to a misleading ad from Senator Roger Wicker (R). His statement is below:
Baria said, “I am grateful to the many friends and volunteers who have knocked on doors, made phone calls, written postcards and helped in so many other ways. Campaigns are hard work and I am proud to have been joined in this effort by some of the hardest working people I know.”
Baria said, “It is very encouraging to see so many Mississippians across the state joining in the effort to give voters a true choice in November.”
"Hateful threats should have no place in our discourse and I think part of the responsibility is on us as public officials to call this behavior out when it happens.
"“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Mississippi AFL-CIO in this campaign and join them in their work to ensure that working people in Mississippi are treated fairly, provided a safe work environment and receive the paychecks they deserve.”
