Ronnie Musgrove Tours Downtown Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate Ronnie Musgrove was in Downtown Gulfport Thursday to talk about the recovery effort in South Mississippi.

Musgrove chose 13th street as a backdrop. Surrounded by dilapidated buildings and boarded up structures, Musgrove said the key is to get multi peril insurance passed in Congress.

"Gene Taylor has worked hard in the House. If elected, I will push it in the Senate," Musgrove said.

Musgrove told WLOX News that all of the polling data he has seen indicates that the Senate race is very close.

"I think it's going down to the wire" Musgrove said.

Musgrove faces republican Roger Wicker in the November 4th race.
