In Mississippi, there are only national races. Mississippi is one of those states that has the state and local races in the odd years, and national races in the even years. I think it’s a remarkably sensible plan. Now… In the presidential race, I’d vote for Hillary Clinton if I could cross party lines to do it. I think that the longer the battle lasts between Clinton and Obama the more good it does for McCain. In the legislative races, my crossover vote would be for Shawn O’Hara for Democrat Senatorial candidate, and for a write-in against Gene Taylor. I don’t have anything against Taylor, and I think he’s a good legislator for Mississippi. But every seat that can be given to a Republican will be important this year. The Democrats have made national politics a partisan brawl since 2000. It’s time for Republicans to fight back.
It might be interesting to explain why I’d vote for O’Hara. He is something like a Democratic Ron Paul or Mike Gravel. He’s run for every state position he can for many years. Let’s give him a shot at the Senate against Thad Cochran.
There are no choices to make on the Republican side. There is only one candidate in the races. I wouldn’t expect a big turn-out in the Mississippi Republican primary this year.
