John C. Harris
The family of the late state Rep. Charles Young is seeking to stop a political ad that uses a picture of him.
The special election to fill Young's seat in the Mississippi House of Representatives is Tuesday.
A television commercial for Democrat John Harris has a picture of the candidate and Young in it, with the work 'loyalty' underneath it. Young's family objects and filed for an injunction late Monday to stop the ad from airing.
Harris ran against Young in the 2007 elections. The family of Mr. Young is supporting Wilbert Jones, director of Greater Meridian Health Clinic, to succeed Young in the state house.
