Janice Gilliam: Supports Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith vs. Jack Larmour--Which would voters prefer? 


An honest, hard-working candidate, new to the Republican party who has been getting things done in the Legislature to benefit the people back home since 1992? Or--A candidate who calls himself the real Republican but lacks honesty and ability? Even Mr. Larmour''s campaign seems beyond his control. 


First, the fake "NRA endorsement letter," which Jack''s wife explained by saying they "didn''t read" the ad before placing it in The Dispatch. How is that going to float in the House? Will Jack sign bills without reading them? 


Now, Jack''s ad in last Sunday''s paper says that Jeff wrote an anti-gun bill? Come on. Why would the NRA give Jeff their endorsement if he had done that? Mr. Larmour needs to get his facts straight. Unless a candidate truly believes he can do a better job for the people than his opponent, the right thing to do is to drop out and support the better man. 


Even thought Jeff has the real endorsement of the NRA (as well a MS Right to Life and Mark Baker, Republican minority leader of the House,) Jack''s business, called Fork in the Road, has my endorsement for processing deer meat. He does an excellent job at that.
