    VICKSBURG It was a big day last week when a skinny kid from Holly Springs - the 10th of 15 children of a holiness preacher and his wife - walked up to the microphone at the Republican National Convention in New York City's Madison Square Garden. It will be an even bigger day if Clinton LeSueur actually accomplishes his larger quest: winning a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from Mississippi's 2nd Congressional District. In LeSueur's way is a formidable obstacle. Bennie C. Thompson is solidly entrenched after five full terms - and not giving any indication he fears...

    Tireless campaigner made a strong showing in GOP primary. Clinton B. LeSueur amply demonstrated in Tuesday's congressional primary that he is no flash in the pan. The indefatigable fellow knows how to get votes. LeSueur set up a November rematch with incumbent Rep. Bennie Thompson after easily dispatching two challengers for the Republican nomination. Although the turnout was terribly light, LeSueur did a good job of showing the Republican Party leadership that his campaign will be worth investing in. He more than doubled his vote total from the 2002 GOP primary while capturing 85 percent of the vote. He still...

    Magnolia Report ^ | June 2, 2003 | Clinton B. LeSueur
    As the 2003 election season kicks off I hope we the citizenry will factor in candidates moral stance on issue before we cast our vote. As I continue to travel the 2nd District and the State, I am motivated yet humbled by the number of people, both black and white who are asking me to run for U.S. Congress again in 2004. However, I am disheartened and saddened by some of our leaders, both political and religious, weak stance on moral issues. Many have expressed privately their concerns with the growing homosexual movement in our district, our state and our...
