TUPELO – The Mississippi Association of Educators and the National Educators Association announced Tuesday their endorsement of 1st District Democratic congressional candidate Brad Morris.
“Brad Morris has made education a central focus of his campaign,” said Kevin Gilbert, president of the Mississippi Association of Educators, adding that Morris also “shows a clear commitment to improving public education both in Mississippi and nationally … .”
Said Morris: “I had strong family support, but the people in my community and my state made a conscious decision back then to invest in schools and college aid that made a difference for me and thousands of others. We need to continue that legacy.”
Morris faces incumbent U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., in the Nov. 6 general election.
