Roger Wicker faces 3 challengers in race for U.S. Senate seat

Republican Roger Wicker of Tupelo says he has “a mainstream conservative record” representing Mississippi in the U.S. Senate and deserves the opportunity to serve a full six-year term after replacing Trent Lott of Pascagoula.

His Democratic challenger, Albert N. Gore Jr. of Starkville, says Wicker has done too little to help military veterans and to protect Medicare and Social Security.
The two men are on the Nov. 6 statewide ballot for Senate, along with the Constitution Party’s Tom Cramer of Vancleave and the Reform Party’s Shawn O’Hara of Hattiesburg.
