Weiner files paperwork for Senatorial run against Wicker

Coahoma County District 5 Supervisor Dr. Roger Weiner has decided to move forward with plans of a Senatorial Campaign in 2012 against current U.S. Senator for the State of Mississippi Roger Wicker.

Weiner announced via the Clarksdale Press Register in early May that he would be forming an exploratory committee to see if it was feasible and viable option for him to seek election to the U.S. Senate in 2012.

Dr. Weiner has filed his qualification paperwork and says his run will not detract from his current duties as a Coahoma County Supervisor. If elected to the U.S. Senate, he will continue to serve in both capacities.

Currently Wicker serves as Deputy Whip and is a member of the Armed Services Committee; the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee; the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee; and the Veterans Affairs Committee.
