Fundraising Makes Strange Bedfellows

With last year’s retirement of a senior House member to become the mayor of Vicksburg, he who shall not be named, someone had to fill the void of Speaker Philip Gunn’s biggest Democratic sycophant.

That honor now goes to a House Democrat who is leading the race for the member most likely to be challenged in a primary next year.

Meet Rep. Angela Cockerham of Magnolia. Rep. Cockerham has been in the House since 2005 and represents the very southwestern tip of Mississippi. She was elected as a Democrat in each of her runs for her seat.
