The Challenge for Rep. Harper’s Seat: Democrat Nominee Decided Tuesday

MENDENHALL, Miss.–There will be some competition for incumbent Rep. Gregg Harper in the race for his seat in the U.S. House. He’ll face lawyer Douglass McArthur Magee, of Mendenhall, in the November general election. The Democrat nominee was decided in Tuesday’s run-off.

Magee defeated Dennis Quinn with 52 percent of the vote. As with Sen. Thad Cochran, it was not a sound victory, but enough to get the job done.

News Mississippi asked Harper about the general election, which is set for Nov. 4, Tuesday during his appearance at the Cochran victory party.

“We certainly are hopeful we’ll be successful in November,” he said, but refocused the interview on Cochran’s victory.

Harper will also face independent Roger Gerrard and Reform Party candidate Barbara Dale Washer.
