WLBT, 8/21/7

Hinds County District Attorney Faye Peterson has picked up endorsements from Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin and Michele Purvis, one of her opponents in the August 7th primary.

McMillin says he’s backing Peterson over Jackson lawyer Robert Smith because of Smith’s association with Jackson mayor Frank Melton.

The Sheriff told WLBT,”If Frank Melton is supporting a candidate, I’m against them.”
