Monroe -- State Representative Marcus Hunter is throwing his support behind Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo for the 5th Congressional District race.

Hunter also ran in last year's special election to replace former Congressman Rodney Alexander.

Mayo finished third in that contest, Hunter finished 7th with just under three percent of the vote.

So far Mayo is the only Democrat to announce he is running. Five Republicans including Congressman Vance McAllister and one Libertarian candidate have also announced they are running.

The primary is scheduled Nov. 4.
