Final predictions: Can Max Phillips pull the upset?

Voting in the 2007 Mississippi primary elections will begin in 14 hours. I made my predictions a week ago and don’t see any changes — with the exception of the Ag Commissioner’s race. While Lester Spell should win hands down based on his incumbency and a $150,000 campaign cash advantage over GOP challenger Max Phillips, I think Phillips can pull off the upset in this race based on the stench of the beef plant debacle and Spell’s ham-handed party switch.
I still think it shakes out like this in the contested races and here’s your general election lineup:
GOVERNOR: Haley Barbour (R) and John Arthur Eaves (D)
LT. GOVERNOR: Phil Bryant (R) and Jamie Franks (D)
ATTORNEY GENERAL: Al Hopkins (R) and Jim Hood (D)
SECRETARY OF STATE: Delbert Hosemann (R) and John Windsor (D)
STATE AUDITOR: Stacey Pickering (R) and Jacob Ray (D)
STATE TREASURER: Tate Reeves (R) and Shawn O’Hara (D)
COMMISSIONER OF INSURANCE: Mike Chaney (R) and George Dale (D)
COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE: Max Phillips (R) and Rickey Cole (D)
