2018 MS US Senate Elections- Which seat should Brandon Presley-D run for?

MS Class 1 (Wicker-R) Wicker-R faces a tough primary challenge against McDaniel-R. McDaniel-R has a greater than 50-50 chance of winning the Republican nomination. In a matchup against McDaniel, Presley can portray McDaniel as a crazy extremist. In a matchup against Wicker-R, Presley can portray Wicker as corrupt sellout. Presley can campaign as a populist outsider.
MS Class 3(VACANT Cochran-R) Republican candidates are Harper-R ,Palazzo-R or Pickering-R or Governor Bryant can appoint himself to give Lt Governor Tate Reeves the incumbency advantage in the 2019 MS Governors Race. Democrats should nominate former MS Attorney General Mike Moore. A popular 4 term State Attorney General known for suing big tobacco in 1990's.

This will give Democrats an opportunity in picking up both MS US Senate Seats.
