Memphis Commercial Appeal - Officials back up Davis - McCullough asked to halt 'false attacks' against GOP rival - More than 20 elected DeSoto County officials have gotten involved in the war of words between congressional candidates Greg Davis and Glenn McCullough, penning a letter Tuesday asking McCullough to stop what they termed "false attacks." A total of 21 officials signed the letter, which comes a day after the two Republicans sparred over McCullough TV ads that aired over the weekend. The ads questioned the loyalty of Davis, mayor of Southaven, to the Republican party and accused him of not being a true conservative.
McCullough's campaign manager Brad Davis said Tuesday the ads are fair and accurate comparisons of the two candidates. "We have the facts on our side," Brad Davis said. "We can back up our assertions."
