TUPELO – Local Tea Party organizer Amanda Mandel stepped down Tuesday to join Gail Giaramita’s Constitution Party campaign for Congress.
In an e-letter to Tupelo’s Tea Party members, she said, “I feel that God is leading me to help” her campaign.
Giaramita’s name will be on the Nov. 2 general election ballot with Democratic, Republican and other party nominees, as well as independent candidates for Mississippi’s 1st District seat.
Mandel also urged her friends to do their election homework: “Just like the Secret Service has to study real money in order to spot the counterfeit, we must know what is in the Bible and the Constitution so that we know when something is contrary to what God intended for us.”
