The Mississippi Senate is now in control by the Republicans. I know this article is a few days old (it’s been a crazy week, y’all), but I wanted to share the news. The filing deadline is March 1 so any party switchers have, now, five days remaining to make up his or her mind. For those keeping score, in the Mississippi Senate, the breakdown is now 27R, 24D, 1 Vacancy of a Republican-vacated seat (now-Congressman Alan Nunnelee). The Mississippi House is barely hanging onto its Democratic majority.
