Wicker challenged in Senate racehttp://djournal.com/view/full_story/20644802/article-Wicker-challenged-in-Senate-race?instance=home_news_right

JACKSON – Roger Wicker of Tupelo, seeking his first full term in the United States Senate, may not be in full campaign mode, but he isn’t far from it.

Wicker, a Republican, is considered a heavy favorite against retired United Methodist minister Albert N. Gore Jr. of Starkville in the Nov. 6 election. Still, Wicker has been traveling the state speaking to civic groups and campaigning.

Wicker’s re-election advertising, what he described as a substantial buy, began running on television stations statewide last week.
