Call him Congressman Harper!

April 2, 2008

Congrats to Gregg Harper and team, although I voted for Charlie Ross I was up front about it and now I look forward to working/blogging for the cause.  At ROM world HQ last night we lifted our glasses to working hard and taking advantage of the situations that life puts you in.  A big credit to the Harper team was taking advantage of the breaks they were given and capitalizing on them in a BIG way.  After all the Lord helps those that help themselves.



I like the kinder and gentler Charlie Ross.

Charlie Ross has done a lot of work to re-invent his image for this campaign, last year he was tough and this year he is a little softer. Nothing wrong with that it’s a simple branding strategy.

Charlie Ross Continues to rack up endorsements in CD-03

February 14, 2008


On Wednesday, the Mississippi Hospitality and Restaurant Association formally endorsed Charlie Ross for his Third Congressional District campaign.

“Small businesses are the cornerstone of our Mississippi economy. The Hospitality and Restaurant Association works on a daily basis to help local businesses. While in the state legislature, I stood up for our small businesses and when I get to Washington, I will continue the fight,” Ross said. “I am very excited that the Hospitality and Restaurant Association has decided to endorse me for the Third Congressional District. Once again, this shows that pro-business, pro-jobs organizations know that I will be an effective pro-business, pro-jobs Congressman that gets things done. I am very grateful for this group’s support.”

The mission of the Mississippi Hospitality and Restaurant Association is to unify, foster, promote, and protect the hospitality and food service industries. Currently, the association has 2,100 members.

Endorsements usually don’t mean much to me but we have quite a trend here, Club for Growth, Home Builders, Associated Builders and Contractors, I will assume that NRA is coming since they endorsed him in the primary for Lt. Gov.  His new ad is below.

I think this race has been Charlie’s to lose from the jump despite months of TV ads from Landrum that were pretty decent.  I still think that CR has the momentum and although this is no endorsement I personally feel that he would be a fine congressman.

2. John Rounsaville: $129,345

3. Charlie Ross: $100,684

This Race will come down to the wire.  We still like Ross at this point, but have very few problems with Landrum or Rounsaville.
