BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Lately, we've been hearing so much talk from the Republican side in the upcoming U.S. Senate election, but we haven't heard much from democrats. A group of women from Harrison County is trying to bring more attention to the Democratic side of the election battle.
On Saturday afternoon, the Harrison County Federation of Democratic Women met in Biloxi to get the ball rolling on organizing ways women in its community can get active in the upcoming senate election.
It's what Public Relations Chair Mary Larson says is important, because whoever wins November's election, represents everyone in the state.
"I think it's very important to be a part of a group that thinks like you and can give you more affect than you can have by yourself," said Larson. "We can get together and explain to women how important it is that we select candidates that support us as women and our families and our children. That's our thrust in this election."
The group's next meeting will be held at 1 p.m. on Sept. 20.
