CLINTON, Miss.–The vote date for the state-wide general election is now only one week and one day away. Initiative 42, a possible change to the state constitution that could affect not only education, but the entire state budget, has been one of the hottest races. One Mississippi city has allowed candidates to give their spiels on their candidacy.
In Clinton, Initiative 42 was also debated, and the results are now on YouTube. The city did not take a stance on Initiative 42, but rather published the debate to allow Parents Campaign leader Nancy Loome, and House Speaker Phillip Gunn, both Clinton residents, the chance to explain their stances.
The videos were published just as Gunn, along with Gov. Phil Bryant and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves are making joint appearances to discourage votes for 42.
You can see both side argue their cases in the above video.
