Mark Gladney addressed voters during a news conference Monday morning.
The democrat is running for Congress in Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District and he is hoping to unseat incumbent Steven Palazzo.
“The best predictor of future performance is past performance and I will put my record of character up against anyone’s especially Steven Palazzo,” Gladney said. “I don’t know anything but public service. From the time I was 17 years old I left and tried to serve my nation and my country and I’m asking to do that now.”
