Welcome to Crawdaddy

Ha! First!

Welcome to Crawdaddy, the Sun Herald’s new political blog. I didn’t pick the name – it was a somewhat Democratic process with staffers! This blog starts as the 2011 election battle becomes fully engaged after Wednesday night’s filing deadline for state legislative candidates.

I think I’ll follow this post with probably several about South Mississippi’s race for House District 111, which includes Pascagoula. This is going to be a key race in the statewide battle between Republicans and Democrats for control of the House.

Welcome to Crawdaddy. Feel free to join in the conversation!
