Senate Candidate Josh Harkins today received the formal endorsement of the largest pro-business trade association in Mississippi, the Mississippi Association of Realtors. The endorsement puts more momentum behind Harkin’s race to be the next Senator from MS Senate District 20.
“The Mississippi Association of Realtors is excited to endorse Josh Harkins in his election for State Senate. We believe that Josh has the experience and leadership necessary to help the State of Mississippi and the residents of Senate District 20 prosper,” said Derek Easley, Governmental Affairs Director for the Mississippi Association of Realtors.
“This is one of the most sought after endorsements in any campaign. Nobody is more sensitive to the devastating effects of this recession than realtors are,” said Harkins. “My priority is to bring new jobs to Mississippi, and I am proud to have the realtors standing with me as I move forward to achieve this.”
The Mississippi Association of Realtors joins U.S. Congressman Gregg Harper, Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, former GOP Chairman Jim Herring and Flowood Mayor Gary Rhoads in their endorsement of Josh Harkins for Senate.
