McGlowan, Nunnelee race would be interesting

Jan. 24–If Angela McGlowan doesn’t run for Congress this year, it won’t be because she failed to test the waters.

McGlowan — who says she’ll announce her intentions in February, when her contract with Fox News is up — has been making the rounds as a speaker at civic clubs, Republican groups and other community gatherings across the 1st Congressional District for several months now, not to mention the Tea Party events in the region.

She’s clearly on a mission to raise her profile in North Mississippi as she contemplates a possible Republican race for the 1st District seat held by Democrat Travis Childers.

For now, however, the only Republican who has filed qualifying papers for the race is state Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo. Nunnelee will formally kick off his campaign Monday with three separate events, including a noon rally at the Tupelo Furniture Market.
