Representatives of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce bussed through Meridian Monday, making a stop at South Industrial Park’s Structural Steel plant to endorse U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Republican, who is running against former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, a Democrat, for the senatorial seat vacated by Trent Lott last year.
Wicker was appointed by Gov. Haley Barbour to take Lott’s place until the Nov. 4 election.
The Chamber of Commerce is touring the country in its bus, dubbed the VoteForBusiness Bandwagon, to endorse U.S. House and Senate candidates that have a record of voting with chamber of commerce recommendations.
