MS - Fleming Hoping for a Win

Note to blogging self: man, we wish Mississippi did some polling. It'd be really nice to see how State Rep. Erik Fleming (D-Clinton) is faring in what is described as a long-shot bid against incumbent Sen. Trent Lott (R):

Fleming faces tough competition running against long time Senator Trent Lott who is entering his 33rd year representing Mississippi in Congress. Fleming won the Democratic nomination to face Lott by beating Bill Bowlin in a run-off election getting 65 percent of the vote. The state representative said he thought long and hard about running for the U.S. Senate and was actually urged to run. “A lot of people said, ‘Well, there’s no chance. Nobody’s going to give you the time of day.’ It’s just amazing how things work,” he said.
