Last Week To Qualify For 2012

The qualifying period to run for House and Senate races began last Tuesday and in the short time frame, it expires on Friday, January 13. Will we see some last minute dramatics or will incumbents generally be able to get by without taking too many deep breaths?

** Joining Albert Gore Jr. in the Democratic primary for the right to take on Sen. Roger Wicker, who will but as far as I know hasn’t qualified for re-election, is Dr. Roger Weiner of Clarksdale, who also serves as a supervisor in Coahoma county. And gathering signatures to run as an independent against Wicker is Thomas Cramer. Cramer is a Tea Party activist who looks to be running to the incumbent’s right.

Still no other big names on the Democratic side, and really no whispers of any.
