Senator Wicker Hosts Town Hall Meeting

Senator Roger Wicker told a town hall gathering Monday night that soaring energy prices are foremost on Mississippians' minds.

The Republican hosted the meeting at the University of Southern Mississippi's Thad Cochran Center in Hattiesburg.

Wicker took questions and said he favors lifting the congressional ban on off-shore drilling. He says he hopes the ban will be lifted during a debate in the U.S. Senate this week.

Wicker faces Democrat and former governor Ronnie Musgrove in a special election in November to fill the remainder of Trent Lott's senate term.
