Haley Barbour almost certainly isn’t 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 state’s battle for the GOP Senate nomination.

I’m surprised Barbour has any influence at all 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?

“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.
