Flowers and McDaniel Qualify
As the Republican Party began to post qualifiers on their website, a couple noticeable Senators who were missing from that list were Chris McDaniel and Merle Flowers. Both have been talked about as statewide contenders, but 2011 will not be their year.
Flowers has qualified for re-election for his Desoto county seat; while McDaniel has qualified for his Jones county based Senate seat. Both are the only men to qualify in their respective races at this point.
