January 27, 2022 PASCAGOULA, Miss. – In the two months between State Senator Brice Wiggins’ congressional campaign announcement on Oct. 25, 2021 and the Dec. 31 FEC (Federal Election Commission) reporting cutoff, his campaign raised over $125,000. FEC reports for all candidates are due by Jan. 31, 2022.
“We went from $0 to over $125,000 in just over two months,” said Wiggins. “Our campaign is resonating with people throughout the Fourth Congressional District. That total came from almost every county in the district.”
The list includes a combination of max donations ($2,900 per person for the primary), those under the $200 level and a large number in between.
Jerry St. Pé, former president of Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, who retired after 16 years at the helm and 40 years total at the company, is one of those donors. While he was president, Ingalls built over 40 ships for the Navy.
“I strongly support Brice for several reasons, one of which is the need for effectiveness at the federal level, particularly in the areas of national defense and appropriations,” said St. Pé. “I also know him to be a man of honor who will listen, study the issues and work tirelessly to get things done for the people of South Mississippi just like he has shown us in the state senate. We need Brice right now in Congress.”
Wiggins also filed a report at the state level which reflects a total of over $196,000 in his state senate campaign fund.
This week on Monday, Wiggins took the next step toward candidacy for the June 7, 2022 Congressional primary by qualifying as a candidate with the Mississippi GOP. Mississippi election law requires candidates be qualified by their parties between January 1 and before March 1 to become official.
“I’m running to get things done for all the people of south Mississippi. I pride myself as a State Senator on listening to and being personally available for the people. With determination, experience and my legislative skills, I can make things happen,” said Wiggins. “I will be a dedicated servant leader in D.C. who prioritizes the Fourth Congressional District.”
