Segment 1: The election is just around the corner and both major parties are hard at work, rallying the troops and bringing their message to the people. Mississippi GOP chairman Josef Nosef says the Republican party is in good shape in Mississippi.
Ricky Cole is Chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party. He says in addition to getting out the vote, he's concerned with one major issue.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says he thinks it would be a good idea for people in the state to voluntarily show identification when they vote next week even though it is not required by law.  Republican Bryant says he believes voter ID will help prevent election fraud.

Segment 2: As Candidates Week continues, we'll hear from three candidates for the House of Representatives seat in Mississippi's forth congressional district.

Williams is a lifelong Republican, even running for that party's gubernatorial nomination last year. He talks to us about why he switched parties, and why he's running for congress.
