Democrat Mimi Methvin has launched her campaign to unseat Congressman Clay Higgins for Louisiana's 3rd Congressional District seat. She is just one name in a field of 8 people who have registered with the Federal Elections Commission. Last week, we interviewed fellow challenger Josh Guillory.

On her campaign website votemimi.org, Methvin lists coastal issues, campaign finance reform and healthcare as some of her top priorities.

Mimi (which we're told rhymes with "Jimmy") joined Rob Kirkpatrick and Bernadette Lee on Acadiana's Morning News. You can listen to Acadiana's Morning News every weekday morning at 5:30 AM.

The election is set for November 6, 2018.
