Mississippi’s Congressional Republican Keeps on Winning

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., was elected Thursday to serve as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), the sixth highest ranking leadership position in the Republican Party conference of the U.S. Senate.
“I am thankful for the confidence and the support of my colleagues,” Wicker said in a written statement.  “I intend to roll up my sleeves immediately to ensure that we have the resources available to preserve our Republican majority.  This Senate Republican leadership team is ready to go to bat for the American people, and I am proud to be a part of it.”

In a close contest, Wicker defeated Senator Dean Heller, R-Nev., for the post and replaces outgoing Chairman Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas.
