The only debate in the closely contested race between Rep. Travis Childers and state Senator Alan Nunnelee for the First Congressional District seat in Mississippi will take place at 5 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Overby Center Auditorium on the Ole Miss campus.
The event is free and open to the public. Because a large crowd is expected and seats in the Overby Center Auditorium are limited, plans have been made to simulcast the program for any overflow to another hall in the same building. (October 5, 2010)
The general public doesn’t get many chances to ask top government officials questions, but readers of The Oxford EAGLE will get their chance next week if they submit some good ones to New Editor Jonathan Scott, who’s on a panel that will be talking with Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. Got a question? Send it in to Scott at The EAGLE. (February 25, 2010, Page 4)
