Wicker Not Happy With Carson Mailer

In one of his latest mailers sent out to residents of HD 64, Dorsey Carson makes the case that he is bi-partisan. It reads, “Good ideas and hard work mean more than party labels. Dorsey Carson won’t let partisan bickering get in the way.” He then proceeds to include images with Thad Cochran, Roger Wicker, and Donald Rumsfeld. Also included were pics with former Democratic governors William Winter and Ray Mabus.

Sen. Wicker was none too pleased with Carson using the photo as a pawn of his campaign. As a result Wicker recorded a robocall where he called the mailer misleading and reaffirmed his support for Republican Bill Denny.

And here is a statement from Denny: “I am appreciative of Sen. Wicker setting the record straight on the misleading mail piece that my opponent sent out over the weekend. This mail piece tried to confuse voters into believing that my opponent is an actual conservative. I think the facts have proven otherwise throughout this campaign. I am proud to not only have the support of great conservatives like Roger Wicker and Haley Barbour, but also the endorsements of the MS Right to Life, the NRA, and every major business association. I will continue to be a conservative that you can trust to look out for the best interests of voters in HD 64.”
