Michael Patrick Guest (born February 4, 1970) is an American attorney and Republican politician from Brandon, Mississippi. He has represented Mississippi's 3rd congressional district in the United States House of Representatives since 2019.

Biography

Michael Patrick Guest[1] was born on February 4, 1970.[2] He graduated from Mississippi State University with a bachelor's degree in accounting and the University of Mississippi School of Law with a Juris Doctor. He served as the Assistant District Attorney for Madison and Rankin counties from 1994 to 2008, and became District Attorney in 2008.[3]

Elections

2018

Guest ran for the United States House of Representatives in Mississippi's 3rd congressional district to succeed Gregg Harper, who chose not to seek reelection.[4] In the six-way June Republican primary election, Guest received the most votes (45%), with Whit Hughes coming in second with 22%.[5] Because no candidate received 50% of the vote, Guest and Hughes faced each other in a primary runoff election,[6] which Guest won.[5] Guest defeated State Representative Michael Evans, the Democratic nominee, in the general election.[7]

Guest campaigned as a strong supporter of President Donald Trump.[5]

Tenure

In December 2020, Guest was one of 126 Republican members of the House of Representatives to sign an amicus brief in support of Texas v. Pennsylvania, a lawsuit filed at the United States Supreme Court contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election, in which Joe Biden defeated[8] Trump. The Supreme Court declined to hear the case on the basis that Texas lacked standing under Article III of the Constitution to challenge the results of an election held by another state.[9][10][11]

On May 19, 2021, Guest was one of 35 Republicans who joined all Democrats in voting to approve legislation to establish the January 6, 2021 commission meant to investigate the storming of the U.S. Capitol.[12]
