Louisiana Senate race is next priority for Republicans

Sen. Roger Wicker led the successful campaign to retain GOP control of the Senate as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, but he said this week his job isn’t done.

The Mississippi senator spent Monday in Louisiana trying to help fellow Republican John Kennedy in his bid for the Senate in next weekend’s runoff election. Wicker plans to return Saturday to join Vice President-elect Mike Pence on the stump for Kennedy.

“It’s the only show in town and we’re taking it seriously,” Wicker said.
