The Gregg Harper for Congress campaign announced four endorsements Monday.
At a Meridian news conference, the Republican announced endorsements by the Mississippi Association of Realtors, the Associated Builders and Contractors of Mississippi, the National federation of Independent Business and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
"Those are folks that create jobs, that live in the real world, and know how important it is that we support our businesses, small and large," said Harper. "Because they are the ones that are the job creators. And we want to do everything we can to bring jobs into east Mississippi."
Harper is seeking the post being vacated by Chip Pickering, who did not run for re-election. He faces Democratic nominee Joel Gill in the Nov. 4 election.
