BILOXI, Miss. – Delta Air Lines says it’s investigating after a Democratic campaign consultant tweeted a picture of U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker not wearing a mask on a flight.

Matt Harringer told the Sun Herald that he took the picture Thursday on a flight to Jackson. Delta requires passengers to wear a mask on its flights except while eating, and the airline responded to Harringer that it was looking into his photo.

Spokesperson Rick VanMeter says Wicker lowered his face mask to eat a snack, and he forgot to put it back up.

VanMeter says Wicker hasn’t been in contact with President Donald Trump or any of the Republican senators who have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days.
