Trouble in Miss.

Racism at its best. From the DSCC...

Yesterday, the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled in favor of Republican Governor Haley Barbour and disenfranchised millions of Magnolia State voters by denying the state Attorney General's efforts to hold the special Senate election to replace Trent Lott on or before March 19.

The governor has been fighting hard for this delay - even though it seems to circumvent the state's constitution - because he is terrified the Republicans are going to lose this seat.

Today, the DSCC is going on offense and declaring that we're ready to win in November. We're launching a brand new website detailing the real record of Republican candidate and interim Senator Roger Wicker.

The $6 million earmark Wicker secured for a company represented by his former chief of staff is just the tip of the iceberg.

We can't afford another Trent Lott in the United States Senate. Remember, the latest polling shows at least one Democrat, former Governor Ronnie Musgrove, is already winning this seat.
