Tonight the Democratic and Republican candidates for
the seat vacated by Trent Lott have their debate.
Wicker is the Republican appointed to that seat. His
Democratic opponent is Musgrove, a former Governor
defeated in his re-election by Haley Barbour.
Musgrove and Wicker are very much alike, both toe the
conservative theocratic Republican line. They are
out doing each other for the evangelical fundamentalist
voters. Both oppose gun control, gay marriage, and
support pro-life positions. Right now the race is too
close to call, because of the huge registration for
Obama. Just another example of "not a dimes worth of
difference" between a Democrat and Republican.
