JACKSON-The state Democratic executive committee voted tonight to nominate candidates for The United States House of Representatives in the Third and Fourth Congressional Districts to replace nominees who have withdrawn.

The Democratic nominee for U.S. Representative in the 3rd Congressional District is Vicki Slater of Madison.

The Democratic nominee for U.S. Representative in the 4th Congressional District is Matthew Moore of Biloxi.

The candidates’ names and other information must be submitted to the State Election Commission in care of the Secretary of State’s office for approval before they may be certified to appear on the ballot.
