The guy has no national experience and he is a democrat. This is nothing but trying to get name recognition for future attempts.

WTVA announced that Jason Shelton dropped by their studio this morning at 6:00 to announce he was running for Cochran's seat.
Resign

Shelton has failed as mayor of Tupelo and now he intends to be on the campaign trail for the entire state of Mississippi while being paid full time as Mayor of Tupelo. Shelton is an idiot egoistical brat and will be kick out of Tupelo. Shelton will be forced to resign as mayor of Tupelo.

The taxpayers in Tupelo pay for Shelton's full time public relations staff who will be this senator race team at the expense of the taxpayers of Tupelo. If Shelton were an honest person, he would stop drinking beer downtown main street and chasing the young same ole beer drinkers daily.. The city of Tupelo deserves an adult mayor. BINGO

Tupelo's part time boy mayor is history. Chris McDaniel will expose Shelton's choices in his young life. Shelton's life choices represent 1% of the population and will not elect Shelton as a senator. Shelton will not do what is right and resign from Tupelo but the Tupelo voters will demand that Shelton resign. Shelton is capable of doing his job as mayor if he tried. Shelton is nothing but a puppet on a string for the downtowners.
Special Election

Tupelo, MS

#6 Apr 3, 2018
Jason Shelton is not capable of running Plantersville and his tenure as mayor has been one law suit after another. The city now has more committees that are not accountable to the taxpayers and no jail and the highest crime rate in the history of the little town. The voters did not elect Shelton to desert Tupelo and be elsewhere blowing more smoke for this need for a new job. McDaniel will expose Jayboy Shelton for what he really is. The high pitched little boy voice will be embarrassing to the city of Tupelo throughout Mississippi. Shelton wants his cake and eat it too.

Jason Shelton will never be elected for any office in Tupelo nor Mississippi. The only place Jason Shelton is going is home for ever. His voice seems to be getting higher with every beer and red solo cup to go. Willie Jennings and all the council except for the foul mouth Nettie are celebrating Shelton's resignation. LOL Shelton for senate. LOL
Shelton Senator

Shelton is twitter little bird and playing games. Chris McDaniel will hurt Jayboys feelings as he tweets. TUPELO WILL ELECT AN ADULT REPUBLICAN FOR MAYOR. The little town has not had a leader in the mayor's office for a decade or more. The LGBTQ downtowners are packing their bags.

Does the city of Tupelo have a special leave of absence pay schedule for Jason Shelton. Why should the city of Tupelo taxpayers pay Jason Shelton while he is off running for Senator for the next 8 months. I pay my taxes expecting a full time mayor to manage the affairs of the town and that is not possible if you are running for senator and making speeches anywhere in Mississippi that anyone would allow him to speak. It is true that Shelton is not capable of leading Tupelo but why pay Shelton to elsewhere in Mississippi. If Shelton was not a Bingo star he would resign and move on. Tupelo needs an adult as mayor who is working on all the problems in Tupelo. Shelton will embarrass Tupelo and the state of Mississippi with his high pitched little boy actions and voice.
Tupelo Leave Policy

Tupelo, MS

#11 Apr 3, 2018
The city of Tupelo has a leave policy for all employees including the mayor. The policy states that the council must approve all leaves and all leaves will be without pay. Jason Shelton is requesting a maturity leave with pay for 9 months? Shelton is history in Tupelo and should resign and get on with his campaign which will be embarrassing. Nettie will be his campaign manager....LOL
Shelton Is History

Jason Shelton is a strange little boy that is now history in Mississippi. Mississippi does not elect sissies for Office. Tupelo is through with Shelton and he knew he would be defeated as mayor in the next election. Tupelo is a republican town that will not accept a sissy little high pitched boy as mayor for long. Drinking beer with the young boys downtown on main will go only so far and your red solo cup is empty. Tupelo is through with Jason Shelton and he will not carry Tupelo in the senate election but he will make history with the fewest votes in an election.
Defeated

Tupelo, MS

#13 Apr 4, 2018
Jason Shelton will know how unknown he is when the votes are counted in November. Shelton will want to come back to his mayor job and lick his wounds. The city of Tupelo needs an adult as mayor and Shelton should do something right. Jason Shelton should get out of the way and let Tupelo have a special election and a new adult mayor elected to manage the town. Tupelo has declined enough with Shelton playing big wheel. Bingo

The city of Tupelo has had enough of Jason Shelton and will demand his resignation or be impeached. The democratic party will not fund his campaign for Senate but the poor families in Tupelo will continued to be burdened by the egoist Shelton.
Democrat Losers

#15 Apr 5, 2018
Mike Espy will beat Jason Shelton like a drum. Anyone with good sense knows that the special election to replace Thad Cochran will be a republican and the odds are in McDaniel’s favor. Jason Shelton plans to finance his speech making trips with the city of Tupelo funds and travel on his city expense account driving his city vehicle. Shelton knows he will get few votes for Senator but he is through with the city of Tupelo. Shelton has never been a full time mayor but is paid for the full time job. Shelton should resign and let the people in Tupelo elect an adult republican as mayor.
Costs Evasion

Tupelo, MS

#16 Apr 5, 2018
Shelton has found a way to not work for a living by running for the US Senate and never coming to work in Tupelo but will keep is expense account and his city car and his big unearned salary. Shelton expects the poor families in Tupelo to fund his campaign for Senator knowing very well that he does not have a chance in hell to be elected. Shelton is evading the cost of running for senate and demanding that the city of Tupelo pay for his making speeches and traveling all over the state feeding his ego but not spending a dime of his own money. LOL

The mayor has a full time public relations staff in city hall who will be managing his campaign for US senator. The democratic party will be supporting Mike Espy and the town of Tupelo will be funding Shelton's campaign and campaign manager. Shelton will have his signs all around city hall and on this city provided vehicle that he will use to travel the state making speeches and kissing the baby boys. Shelton drove his city vehicle to the TV station at the expense of the poor hungry democrats in Tupelo.
No Mayor

Tupelo, MS

#18 Apr 6, 2018
Tupelo has not had an adult mayor in 10 years or more. Shelton will grow up someday and get out of politics. If he resigns as mayor the primary election will send Jason home for good. Why should Tupelo allow a loser to serve out a lame duck term. Shelton is a loser and will not even make it to the general election. Tupelo will elect an adult mayor if Shelton would do what is right and resign. The voters did not appoint all the Shelton friends with executive offices in city hall but the voters will fire Shelton and all his downtown drinking buddies on main street. The Tupelo voters will soon sweep downtown main street clean.

The poor hungry democrats in Tupelo refuse to work hard and start their own businesses. They refuse to contribute to humanity and follow the social contract. They made their own bed to sleep in.

The thugs in Tupelo play musical beds. Where yo stays this week? How many unplanned and unwanted children do you have so far? Tupelo has a free baby factory hospital with. free food and diapers to go. Who yo daddy?
