Congressional candidate, Tom Carter, is targeting his voters over breakfast. Carter was at the Hardee's restaurant in Gulfport Friday morning, talking politics with the customers over coffee. Carter's campaign manager says it's an effort to get to know the issues that are important to the people, especially senior citizens. Carter says he spends 14 hours a day traveling the 4th district, going everywhere from Waffle Houses to coffee shops to let people know who he is.
Carter says, “Well, I am here campaigning. I’m meeting the people at the grass roots. I have about four or five breakfasts every morning. I’d love to say I get to eat, but I don’t. That’s where the voters are. The voters are out having their daily coffee and getting around. The world's problems are generally solved at coffee shops.” Carter opposes Gene Taylor and incumbent, Steven Palazzo, in the upcoming election.
