Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The GOP establishment had a bad night in Mississippi election results yesterday, as two RINO congressmen were forced into runoffs by conservatives.

In District 3, Congressman Michael Guest was forced into a runoff by underfunded conservative challenger Michael Cassidy.   Cassidy did robocalls attacking Guest for his vote to establish the Jan. 6 committee in the House.  With 89% of the vote in, Cassidy leads Guest 47.8% to 46.6%.

In District 4, RINO incumbent Congressman Steve Palazzo was held under 32% with 90% of the votes reporting in a 7 candidate field.  The race for which conservative he will face in the runoff is still undetermined with Jackson County (Gulfport) Sheriff Mike Ezell receiving 12.8% and businessman Clay Wagner at 11.8%.

President Trump did not endorse in either race, but there is some speculation, he will do so in the runoffs.

Cassidy is a former fighter pilot.  His campaign website is https://www.votecassidy.com/ and contributions can be made there online.

UPDATE: With 97% of the vote in the 4th district reported, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell is in clear second place, making the runoff.  The vote stands at Steve Palazzo 31.6% and Mike Ezell 25.2%    www.mikeezell.ms

It is great that Mississippi still requires an actual majority to avoid a runoff. The RINO leadership in the NC General Assembly dropped this first to 40% then to an absurd 30%, and they did it with dishonest last minute changes that caught party activists off guard. In North Carolina, Palazzo's 31.6% would have made him the nominee, while in Mississippi that gets him a runoff he will probably lose. A 30% threshold to avoid a runoff is voter suppression. It is incumbent protection, nothing more or less.

It is great to see these two RINOs on the ropes, especially since they were not previously regarded as being in trouble politically. We can help by contributing to the America First conservatives, and I have already sent contributions by internet to both Cassidy and Ezell.
