Gene Taylor tells the Sun-Herald he may run against Wicker

But if Mabus does move up, move on, or move out, who would replace him as Navy Secretary? Apparently, former Rep. Gene Taylor wants it. He told the Sun Herald that is the only political position he would consider in the future. (Taylor has recently taken a job with a private company based out of New Orleans). If this is a possibility and I am Steven Palazzo- I become Taylor’s biggest cheerleader.

Rep. Palazzo has stumbled out of the gates in his first few months in D.C. and while Taylor says he’s not interested in his old job, you would have to think interest may rise if Palazzo appears vulnerable in a year. Having Taylor occupied with the Navy wouldn’t be the worst thing for the freshman Congressman.
