PRESS RELEASE: DR. VALERIE SHORT CALLS ON NATIONAL DEMOCRATS TO SUPPORT WALTER ZINN
Dr. Valerie A. Short, Democratic gubernatorial candidate, is calling on national and congressional Democratic leaders to support Walter Zinn. Zinn led in the May 12th special election to succeed deceased Rep. Alan Nunnelee in Mississippi’s First Congressional District and will face Republican Trent Kelly in the June 2nd runoff.
“Walter has run a spirited campaign on the issues that the vast majority of the people support and I am outraged that he has not been given the support he needs to win by our national party”.
“He has worked tirelessly for Democratic candidates and the party for many years and so it is time for the party to support him”. Dr. Short went on to say, “I intend to do my part over the next 2 weeks and urge my fellow Democrats to put some skin in the game and do the same”.
Dr. Valerie Short is a U.S. Air Force veteran and a licensed obstetrician. As a young woman, she graduated from Vanderbilt University with degrees from both the undergraduate program and medical school. A mother of one now proud grandmother, she resides in Ridgeland.
