MIDLAND - It was a big day for one former Midland mayor.
Business and community leaders from Midland and Odessa gathered together on Friday morning to show their support for Mike Canon.
It's all part of his campaign for the March primaries.
Canon has thrown his hat in the ring for State Senator.
He'll be running against Kel Seliger and he says he couldn't have asked for better support.
"Of course, I've been out of the public world for about five years. So we had to kind of get back out there and let people know, remind them who we were and we've done that. We've had a lot of favorable support and we appreciate that," Canon said.
Early voting is already underway and will end on February 28.
