Something as rare as a blue moon happened not once, but twice, on Tuesday night: Mississippi congressional incumbents lost their seats.
OXFORD — North Mississippi congressional candidates exchanged sharp words at a debate Tuesday night about how loyal each would be to his party’s leadership on Capitol Hill.
With the Republican primary behind him, State Sen. Alan Nunnelee returned to the campaign trail Thursday in Columbus with former opponent Henry Ross in his corner.
There’s only one race on Tuesday’s Republican primary ballot — but its outcome could be felt in north Mississippi for years to come.
If Alan Nunnelee were in Washington now serving as Mississippi’s First District congressman, and was facing a decision whether to vote yes or no on President Barack Obama’s health care plan, he would have already announced his decision.
