Natchez Democrat editorial: Post-election fence mending will be necessary

Sojourner runs as a Republican but appears to have lost much Republican support after her involvement in fellow senator Chris McDaniel’s failed attempt to oust U.S. Senator Thad Cochran.

Dearing appears to be the old-school Southern Democrat – that is to say more conservative than anyone with D behind his name north of the Mason-Dixon line.

Saying the two are polar opposites is an understatement.

But what’s interesting is that apparently the district is nearly evenly split…

…Whoever wins will clearly lack a strong mandate from at least half of the constituency they will represent.
