The Fix names 3 in Miss. delegation as facing tough challengers

3. Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.): The freshman has escaped the CPA, but his opponent, former Eupora mayor Henry Ross, is up with about $40,000 worth of TV ads. Nunnelee has run more than $100,000 worth of ads. Nunnelee beat Ross pretty handily in 2010 – 52 percent to 33 percent – so unless something has really changed, he will be favored to win reelection and also avoid a runoff.

4. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.): Thompson faces an established opponent in Greenville Mayor Heather McTeer.
