Huckabee backs Nunnelee’s run in 1st District

TUPELO – State Sen. Alan Nunnelee, R-Tupelo, on Friday was endorsed by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Huck PAC for the 1st District congressional race.
Nunnelee will seek the Republican nomination for the seat now held by Democrat Travis Childers of Booneville. No other Republicans have announced their candidacies for the 2010 contest.
In a written statement, Huckabee said Nunnelee “has been a strong voice for Republicans for over a decade in the Mississippi Senate. A true pro-life champion, Sen. Nunnelee agrees that every single life has value, and should be protected from the moment of conception.”
