Flowers and McDaniel Qualify

February 21, 2011

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.

    Maybe McDaniel will be ready for US Senate in 2012!

      Too bad Jones is in the 4th CD because I imagine the next Senator will be Gregg Harper.

        Gregg will try….So will Pickering, Palazzo, McDaniel, and maybe even Phil….. When Thad retires (2014) you will see several go after that seat….

        But back to 2012, does McDaniel have the goal to go after Wicker?

          Add Mark Keenum to that list!

          McDaniel doesn’t seem like the type who would go try to primary a fellow Republican. I think he is happy where he is at. I was referring to 2014. I imagine when Thad retires Harper will be the top guy to replace him.

    Would love to see McDaniel in the U.S. Senate!

    Yes, I meant 2014.
