Jeramey Anderson to run for U.S. House
A Democratic member of the Mississippi Legislature says he’s running for the U.S. House.
Representative Jeramey Anderson of Moss Point said Friday he will seek his party’s nomination next year in South Mississippi’s Fourth Congressional District. Republican Steven Palazzo won the fourth district seat in 2010 and is preparing to seek another two year term.
Anderson says he wants to work across party lines on issues such as ‘poor schools, economic hardships, and government transparency.’“Because a lot of the things we talk about in Jackson are not partisan. They’re made to be partisan, but if we can sit down and have conversations about what the issues are, talk about the solutions, sit down, and understand that. I’m not going to get one percent of what I want, but I may be able to get a little bit closer if I come to the table ready to kind of negotiate and compromise on some things,” said Anderson.
Anderson won a special election to fill a vacant seat in the state House in late 2013. He won a four year term in 2015 and can keep the seat while running for federal office.
