Haley Barbour almost certainly isnt running for office again in Mississippi, but the former governor, one-time Republican National Committee chief and influential Washington lobbyist is playing a prominent role in the states battle for the GOP Senate nomination.
Barbour is the patriarch of a politically savvy family driving Sen. Thad Cochrans bid for a seventh term. Challenger Chris McDaniel and his tea party allies are holding up the GOP elder statesman as more proof that Cochran is little more than a creature of Washington.

Babar the ellyfunt needs to shut it.
Of course, with Thad’s senility coming into play vis a vis animal molesting, Babar might have to muzzle Thad and do all the talking.
In effect, run for office himself.
Why are we not hearing about Barbour’s business partnerships with Terry McAuliffe?
Barbour is a Booshie plant.
because Terry is a crook and the business is really criminal activity
I’m surprised Barbour has any influence at all in the GOP.
It appears if one is a Conservative and makes a verbal mistake its a career ender in the GOP but if one pardons a bunch of criminals one can emerge as a powerful lobbyist in the GOP.
You didn't need Barbour's participation to know that.
I’d like to know how the oil discoveries in MS are a part of the campaign. Are the two candidates talking about how business can pull huge pockets of low income middle MS out of their history of poverty?
As Jesse Jackson once said, stay outta da Booshies!
“And his influence business in Washington will take a big hit when he no longer has a Mississippi senator in his back pocket.”
Haley’s still got Wicker, but maybe we can fix that in four years.
