Ocean Springs Mayor Shea Dobson announced on Tuesday his endorsement of Republican E. Brian Rose in his bid for U.S. Congress.

“Brian understands the importance of keeping government out of the way,” Dobson said.”He is a veteran and successful entrepreneur who will lead the charge of reigning in government fraud, waste, and abuse of our tax dollars.”

Rose is vying for the Republican nomination to represent Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

Recently, Rose received the endorsement of the Mississippi and National Chapters of Bikers for Trump, an organization that serves many needs of veterans and the community.

Rose announced his candidacy in November. Since then, he has held numerous town hall meetings with voters throughout the district.

The Republican Primary Election will be held June 5, 2018.
