To put a nail in the coffin of how much trouble Ds are in on these statewide races, I saw a sign today that said ‘Republicans Like Mike Sumrall’ in front of the Tinseltown Theatre in Pearl (heart of red meat Republican country). This is obviously trying to sway voters into thinking that Sumrall is actually the Republican candidate. That distinction goes to Stacey Pickering.

For Sumrall to be touting what a straight-shooter he is and to be hammering Pickering about his experience or his campaign finance sheets adding up, all I can say is this . . . at least he remembers what party has nominated him.
