CNN projects Wicker wins in Mississippi special

(CNN) - CNN projects Republican Sen. Roger Wicker held on to his seat Tuesday night, winning Mississippi's special Senate election.

Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott's appointed successor had faced a tough fight from former Democratic Gov. Ronnie Musgrove. Party identification is not included on the ballot in Mississippi, so a projected surge in African-American and Democratic voters was not expected to have the same impact as it did elsewhere.
