Kelly: Humbled to have support of fellow Combat Veterans

TUPELO, MS – Trent Kelly, District Attorney, Colonel and two-time Iraq Veteran, received yesterday an endorsement from The Combat Veterans for Congress Political Action Committee (PAC).

“I am humbled to have the support of fellow Combat Veterans,” Kelly said. “Thank you, Combat Veterans for Congress PAC for the endorsement.”

Co-founded in August 2009, the Combat Veterans for Congress PAC endorses candidates, “who previously demonstrated their willingness to ‘Go Into Harm’s Way’ to protect and defend teammates in combat.” Candidates who receive endorsements are fiscally conservative men and women who are committed to reining in Congressional spending and dedicated to defending the U.S. Constitution.

“I have fought for this great nation on the battlefields of Iraq,” Kelly said. “I have fought for victims and law enforcement against criminals in the courtroom. I will fight for the people of Mississippi in the United States Congress.”
