New US Rep. Kelly keeps most of his predecessor’s staff

Kelly, 49, is a former district attorney who won a special election in early June to fill most of a two-year term started by fellow Republican Alan Nunnelee, who was 56 when he died of brain cancer in February. Nunnelee was first elected in north Mississippi’s 1st District in 2010.

Kelly said keeping most of Nunnelee’s staff has helped him.
