Gulfport, MS — Republican Congressional Candidate E. Brian Rose announced today a debate between himself and Rep. Steven Palazzo will take place in the weeks leading up to the June 5th Republican Primary Election. The outcome of that election will determine who the GOP candidate will be for Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District.

The debate will be facilitated by the Harrison County Republican Club. Earlier this week, Rose accepted the invitation by club president Dan Carr. Carr later confirmed Palazzo has also accepted and would be following up this week to finalize details.
Rose, who announced his candidacy just one week after Palazzo was reelected in 2016, has spent the last year exposing inconsistencies between Palazzo’s campaign promises and the way he votes in Washington. “I am excited the people of South Mississippi will get to see the contrast between the two candidates and have the opportunity to make an informed decision at June 5th election,” Rose said. “The people of South Mississippi were promised small government, but were forced to swallow more of the Pelosi-Obama liberal agenda.”
During his tenure, Palazzo votes have been responsible for adding $7 trillion to the national debt, expanding Obamacare, funding Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, and facilitating amnesty programs for illegal immigrants.
The debate is scheduled for May 16, 2018.
