Ledger Endorses McCullough, Holland

Clarion Ledger - Endorsement: McCullough - In the 1st Congressional District - an open seat that was vacated when former U.S. Rep. Roger Wicker, R-Tupelo, was appointed to serve the unexpired term of former U.S. Sen. Trent Lott when he retired - state Rep. Steve Holland of Plantersville is the best choice in the Democratic primary based on his cumulative legislative experience and based on his service as a longtime aide to the late legendary former U.S. Rep. Jamie Whitten. In the 1st District's Republican primary, former Tupelo mayor and former Tennessee Valley Authority chairman Glenn McCullough Jr. of Tupelo possesses the best overall qualifications among the Republican contenders to represent the diverse interests of the district on Capitol Hill. The Democratic and Republican nominees will meet independent Wally Pang and Green Party candidate John M. Wages Jr. in the November general election.
