Early fundraising gives Senate clues

Mississippi: Republican Roger Wicker, who has been in office for just over three years, raised $471,000 and has $834,000 on hand. So far, Wicker is home free. “Nobody’s even scratching at it,” says one long-time observer about potential Wicker foes. A recent poll by Public Policy Polling (D) gave Wicker substantial leads over four prominent Democrats who have been mentioned as potential foes, beating ex-US Rep. Travis Childers 51-33, ex-Attorney General Mike Moore 48-38, ex-Governor Ronnie Musgrove 52-35 and ex-US Rep. Gene Taylor 48-36. None of these Democratic A-listers, however, have shown any interest in taking on Wicker.
