 The outcome of Tuesday's U.S. Senate runoff election in Mississippi could be decided by voters on the state's Gulf Coast.

The incumbent, Republican Thad Cochran, argues for a seventh-term almost entirely on the promise to keep steering money back home.

Nowhere is that more visible than along a coastline dominated by Ingalls Shipbuilding, Keesler Air Force Base, Stennis Space Center and thousands of homes and business rebuilt with the help of federal aid after Hurricane Katrina.

Yet GOP challenger Chris McDaniel won most of the counties in southeast Mississippi in the June 3 primary.

And even where Cochran won, McDaniel cut into the advantage that the senator has enjoyed in the region in his previous campaigns.
