The MBJ received a prompt response from Thompson’s office. My conversation with Congressman Thompson:
Do you plan to run for reelection?
I do plan to run for reelection.
You have been friends with Hudson’s family and her father Victor McTeer for a long time?
I’ve known him ever since he came to the Delta. And so. Politics is politics.
Will it be strange to run against his daughter?
I’m running against his daughter and his daughter is running against me. I don’t think anything’s personal, and I don’t see it’s about anybody. Who’s the best representative of the 2nd District of Mississippi?
