|Description||Mississippi Democrats plan to choose a new nominee to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo in the Nov. 6 general election. |
Democratic chairman Rickey Cole told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Michael Herrington of Hattiesburg has filed papers to withdraw from the 4th District race in the southern part of the state.
"His mother got sick. They got overwhelmed with some financial stuff. They tried to start a restaurant and the business fell in on them," Cole said in a phone interview from Charlotte, N.C., where he is attending the Democratic National Convention.
Herrington won the party nomination in March and ran a low-profile campaign.
