Jason Shelton files for U.S. Senate

The race for Thad Cochran's seat has another Democratic candidate. Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton announced today that he'll also be running in the 2018 special election.

Shelton says he intends to bring what he calls "energy and success" to Washington.

"We've had such a strong legacy of leadership in the United States Senate and on November 6, Mississippians are going to send the next generation of leaders to the United States Senate. Because of the record of success in my hometown of reducing debt and creating jobs. And we're going to go all across this state to make that case," said Shelton. 

Shelton says he has the best record in the race and has the most conservative record as far as economic growth.
