Antonia Eliason for MS-01

A New Leaf for Mississippi

I believe that it is time to bring some new ideas to Mississippi politics. While I have voted Democrat my entire life, I have often felt dissatisfied with the candidates and their policies.

Since Bernie Sanders came to the forefront of national attention in 2016, we have seen an injection of progressive ideas that has shifted the Democratic Party as a whole to address more of the real concerns that working-class Americans face. There is a serious lack of political engagement in Mississippi – reaching out to new voters and energizing them to participate in grassroots community and political movements is key to achieving a better future for Mississippi.
