MS-01: Trent Kelly (R) - Northeast: Tupelo, Southaven, Columbus
Solid Republican. This northeastern Mississippi had a brief flirtation with conservative Democrat Travis Childers between 2008 and 2010. But Kelly, an Iraq War veteran, has locked down this seat since winning a 2015 special election.
MS-02: Bennie Thompson (D) - Mississippi Delta: Jackson, Greenville
Solid Democratic. The dean of the delegation, Thompson is a fixture in this African-American seat based in the Mississippi Delta.
MS-03: OPEN (Harper) (R) - South central: Jackson suburbs, Meridian Solid Republican. Harper's retirement is likely to draw a crowded GOP field for the June 5 primary (and likely a June 26 runoff) in this safe GOP seat based in the Jackson suburbs. Rankin/Madison county prosecutor Michael Guest
