Democrat hopes for underdog win in Mississippi US House race

Tupelo, Mississippi Democratic candidate Walter Zinn says he sees himself as David to the Republicans’ Goliath in a north Mississippi congressional race.

Zinn is being outspent by the GOP’s Trent Kelly. And, they’re running in a district that Republicans have controlled for most of the past two decades.

Still, Zinn says he believes Mississippi voters can relate to the underdog, and he’s hoping that will help him in Tuesday’s runoff.
