Angela McGlowan trying to turn 1st District on its ear

McGlowan, 39, announced her candidacy Feb. 8, the day after her contract with Fox News expired.

Since then, she’s been traveling the North Mississippi district in search of votes and campaign money.

McGlowan faces state Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo and former Eupora Mayor Henry Ross in the Republican primary.

Nunnelee is the acknowledged frontrunner in a race that is drawing national attention and is considered a toss-up between Nunnelee and Childers, who won a full term in 2008 after winning two special elections to succeed Rep. Roger Wicker, who had been named to the Senate after Trent Lott resigned.

McGlowan established her conservative reputation in the 1990s while working for Republican members of congress and as outreach director for former Sen. Bob Dole’s Better America Foundation

She also cemented her right-wing values as a Fox News political commentator and author of the best-selling book “Bamboozled: How Americans Are Being Exploited by the Lies of the Liberal Agenda.”
