Robert Gray: Confederate flag shouldn't be associated with state flag

When it comes to our state flag, Gray says it hurts the state economically, "The people that want it, can wave it all they want," Gray said, "but it can't be our state flag. It's bad for business."

Roger Wicker: OpEd: Ties Musgrove to Obama to demonstrate liberal record

Ronnie Musgrove failed to mention Barack Obama by name when asked “For whom will you vote for President, and why?” Musgrove’s statement that he would support the nominee of his Party would have been perfectly acceptable during the Primary season, but seemed to be a point of embarrassment for him just weeks before the general election.

Wicker’s ability to tie the liberal record of Obama to Musgrove that was the deciding difference in the debate. By bringing up the issue of Judicial appointments as they might affect the Second Amendment as well as abortion and traditional marriage, Wicker demonstrated the continuing difficulty of any Democrat in a statewide election, regardless of how conservative they might be.
