MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Tuesday,Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo received an endorsement from a state official. Representative Marcus Hunter is backing Mayo in the mayor's bid for the 5th U.S. Congressional District seat current held by Vance McAllister.

This is the second time democrat Mayo has ran for this position. During his first campaign, Hunter was actually an opponent. Hunter made the official endorsement announcement at his law offices in Monroe.

"There is no candidate that has run in the last session or will run in this particular race that will have a body of work comparable to Mayor Jamie Mayo. And, as such, we should continue to get behind him," said Hunter.

Even though Mayo has confirmed he will run for the position, he has not officially made the announcement. Mayo is expected to make his official announcement in Monroe Wednesday morning at 9AM, and at 1:30PM in Alexandria.
