Wicker should breeze to first full term in U.S. Senate

Republican Sen. Roger Wicker is vying for another term as a United States Senator for the state of Mississippi.

Wicker, 61, a long-time state legislator, first arrived in the U.S. Senate when he was appointed to fill Trent Lott’s vacated seat in 2007. In 2008, Wicker defeated former governor Ronnie Musgrove in a special election to complete Lott’s term.

Wicker will face Democrat Albert N. Gore and a pair of other candidates in his bid to win his first full term.

Wicker currently serves as the deputy whip and also serves on multiple committees. He 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.
