District 3 was targeted by the GOP as a possible pickup in its attempt to flip the state House to Republican control for the first time since Reconstruction. The Mississippi GOP's push hopes to mirror successful efforts in other southern states, including North Carolina and Louisiana, to break the last vestiges of the old Democratic "solid south."[2]
