ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- Incumbent Republican House member Alan Nunnellee is facing a challenge from four other candidates including Democratic challenger Brad Morris.
Tuesday, one of these two men will very likely hold the First District Congressional seat now being held by Representative Alan Nunnellee of Tupelo.
The man on the left is Oxford small businessman Brad Morris a Democrat, seeking his first term.
We caught up with both men Monday for one last time before the election .
Nunnellee ,was in Aberdeen at a local restaurant, while Morris met us just outside his Tupelo campaign office.
"Well, the most important issue facing Mississippi right now is jobs. We need to pursue an agenda in Washington that allows for private investment of capital and job creation. And I'm committed to do that," said Nunnellee during a campaign stop Monday.
"We've got some big issues in this country that need to be addressed this fiscal cliff at the end of the year being one of them. But also a path forward putting people to work.And I think the important thing is being willing to work with people for the nation's problems, but also to get things done for the folks here in North Mississippi," said Morris.
Morris worked for the last Democrat to hold the First District Congressional seat Travis Childers.
He says that experience has given him a front-row seat to the inner workings of Congress.
He says determining priorities like education and protecting Medicare are bug issues for him.
While Nunnellee is seeking his second term in office, running on a message of limited government,reduced spending, and lower regulations.
We interviewed supporters for both men Monday afternoon.
"Congressman Nunnellee seems to be behind the small businessman,getting the economy turned back in the direction it should be. And getting the United States back in order like it used to be," said Aberdeen resident Jeff Doty.
Both men believe they have what it takes to get the job done in Washington D.C..
But of course the voters in the First Congressional District will have the last say Tuesday.
There are three other candidates who'll appear on the ballot in this congressional race.
Danny Bedwell with the Libertarian party, Jim Bourland of the Constitution Party and Chris Potts of the Reform Party.
