Michael Cassidy, an America First Congressional candidate in Mississippi’s 3rd District, released an email that revealed coordination between Democrats and an ally of his opponent, U.S. Rep. Michael Guest. Cassidy will be facing off against Guest in a runoff election this Tuesday, June 28.
“Our campaign has received confirmation of what we have long suspected: that my opponent, Michael Guest, desperate after having finished an embarrassing second place in the primary, is now coordinating with Democrats to rig the run-off election this Tuesday,” Cassidy said in a statement.
Cassidy’s campaign obtained an email that showed Republican Party Chairman David Carter — a Guest ally — bragging about holding a meeting with Democrat candidate Shuwaski Young. The purpose of the meeting was to convince Democrats to vote for Guest — who voted for the January 6 committee — in the run-off.
“Even if you are a Democrat, you can vote in this primary for a Republican and then vote Democrat in November (let our Democrat neighbors know we need their help),” reads Carter’s June 21 email, which was reviewed by Breitbart News.
“Ty and I met with Congressman Guest yesterday and his staff in Philadelphia. I met with Mr. Young (the Democrat candidate) on Sunday at the Mount Zion Church service.”
Well, we’ve seen this before haven’t we? Michael Guest ally and Republican Party chair David Carter is coordinating with Democrat leaders to get Democrats to come out and vote for Guest in the run-off to disenfranchise Republican votes.

Cassidy defeated Guest in the first primary race earlier this month, though the margin was not wide enough to avoid a run-off.
“It’s easy to see why Democrats would support Congressman Guest,” Cassidy said in a statement. “He voted for Bennie Thompson’s January 6th Commission, he’s voted with Democrats repeatedly to fund Planned Parenthood, and he’s voted over and over for Biden’s omnibus budgets that have caused inflation to spike and record high gas prices.”
“My message to good Republicans is don’t let Democrats steal our election. Vote Cassidy in Tuesday’s run-off and send a principled, Christian conservative to Congress,” he added.
