Seems that MS Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann has decided to his part as a loyal Republican foot soldier and bury the Senate race at the bottom of the ballot in defiance of Mississippi election law. And Haley Barbour approves. A statement just released by the Musgrove campaign notes that:
Hosemann could cite no statute supporting his decision to move the race from the top of the ballot. However, Attorney General Jim Hood did cite election law requiring federal races be placed at the top of the ballot...
...The unlawful ballot is expected to cause confusion for voters expecting to find the Musgrove-Wicker race with other federal elections where it belongs. The most prominent election in the state will be one of the hardest races to find on Election Day.
Mississippi election law, code 23-15-367, clearly states federal races, like the Musgrove-Wicker race, belong on the top of the ballot.
