Bryant, Ross Pick Up Endorsements

The Republican candidates for lieutenant governor are lining up some key conservative endorsements.

State Auditor Phil Bryant won the backing of Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association, based in Tupelo.

Also Thursday, Mississippi Right to Life announced its endorsement of Charlie Ross. The state senator from Brandon says the pro-life cause is one of the reasons he entered politics.

The Right to Life political action committee says it based its endorsement on Ross's voting record and past work with the pro-life movement.

Ross faces Bryant in the Republican primary next month. The winner of that contest will face Democrat Jamie Franks in November's general election.
