Comer makes campaign stop

James Comer, the Republican nominee to fill former Congressman Ed Whitfield's seat, speaks with Fred Stubblefield Friday afternoon at the courthouse in Marion during a campaign stop on his tour of all 35 counties in the 1st Congressional District. Comer was heading to Princeton following his hour-long stop here, concluding his whirlwind swing through the district the last seven days. Comer will appear on the November ballot twice, facing Democrat Samuel L. Gaskins both times – once for a special election to fill Whitfield's unexpired term and once to fill the seat on Capitol Hill for a full two-year term starting January.
