Candidate Links for US House District 1 - Be a More Informed Voter

Gov. Bryant set May 12 as the special election date to fill the seat left vacant in Mississippi's first Congressional District due to the death of U.S. Representative Alan Nunnelee on February 6.

Given the short campaigning period and the lack of party primaries, many voters have very little knowledge about the 13 candidates who are vying for this position. In addition, short TV campaign ads provide little if any information.  Winston Web took the opportunity to list the candidates in alphabetical order and provide a link for the voter to the campaign webpage or Facebook page of each in hopes of attaining more information. Here is the list:
