Via the AP: Miss. congressman replacing Sen. Lott

Gov. Haley Barbour on Monday announced his choice for Trent Lott’s replacement in the Senate: Rep. Roger Wicker, a conservative congressman.


Wicker will serve until a state-mandated special election is held Nov. 4. He is expected to be a candidate in that race. The winner will serve out the remainder of Lott’s term, which runs through 2024.

The Clarion-Ledger ‘s report has a few additional details, inclusing the following:

Barbour’s decision will leave a new vacancy — this time in the U.S. House of Representatives. He did not say who he would appoint to serve in the interim or when a special election would be for Wicker’s post.
