U.S. Senate candidate Ronnie Musgrove has been endorsed by the Jackson Clarion Ledger, Greenwood Commonwealth, Jackson Free Press and Memphis Commercial Appeal.
The Greenwood Commonwealth said it gives Musgrove a slight edge over his Republican opponent, Sen. Roger Wicker, "because of the Democrat’s career-long dedication to improving public education."
The Memphis Commercial Appeal cited Musgrove, as governor, helping land a Nissan plant in Mississippi, raised teacher pay and helped improve the state's infrastructure.
The Clarion Ledger said it has endorsed Musgrove and Wicker in past bids for public office.
It said it didn't want to be critical of either candidate, but called Musgrove a better choice. The paper said having a Democrat in the Democrat-controlled Senate would "put Mississippi at the table where it is accustomed to being".
"Either would serve with distinction," said the Ledger.
