explain to me how you think Pickering's nomination is big in the MS gov race. Besides, both will likely support him, even if they didn't what's the point?

Mississippi Gov. Ronnie Musgrove is a (D). Pickering is supported by most Mississippians, including the local NAACP. He was endorsed by Miss. Senator Lott. Haley Barbour, former RNC chair, will be running for Miss. Governor in the next election.
The GOP has made huge inroads in the south, predominantly in national elections..the Dems still control much of the local seats....the Dems from the southern states talk conservative, then go to DC and support the liberal agenda of Daschle, et al...they'e been able to get away with this for years, but it's stopping...While a Dem governor doesn't vote for a judge in the Senate, obviously...if Muisgrove does come out for Pickering..then it's fair to ask him how he feels about the Dems in the Senate who won't give the guy an up/down vote...you keep the pressure up on ALL fronts..
