Wicker, national GOP tracking race in typically red La.

With Democrats threatening to regain control of the Senate, the Mississippi senator in charge of getting Republicans elected to the Senate is closely watching each new development affecting races in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and other key battleground states.

But Sen. Roger Wicker, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, also is tracking a Senate race in a state where Republicans usually have nothing to worry about — Louisiana.

“We’re not going to go to sleep in any state,” Wicker said.
