Races I Will Follow

This was a very busy tax season so I did not do much blogging. During the next three months of the primary season, I will cover the following races:

1. Lt. Governor. I'll make no bones about it: I am supporting State Senator Charlie Ross for the post. I think Phil Bryant is dumber than my box turtle Pokey Jo. I also think Ross is a lot more conservative than Bryant. At least Ross stands by his principles. If this were Nazi Germany, Bryant would be singing the "Horst Wessel". Ross would be fighting the Nazis.

2. Chancery Clerk. This race is mainly between Mitch Childre and Larry Swales. I will be doing all I can for Mitch. (There is a third candidate, Kirk McDaniel, but I don't think he'll be a major player.) I have known Mitch for twenty years and I can tell you he will do a good job and serve the people. Swales will serve his ego and his Reservoir buddies.

3. State Auditor. Because I'm a CPA, this is one race I'm interested in. I am hoping Mike Sumrall will be the Democratic nominee. He has the experience and will do a good job running the agency. He will have a tough race. If he should win the primary, he'll have a very tough race in the general election.

Obviously, there are other races and I will comment on them. I'm hoping Cliff Brown will be elected State Senator, but I'm not all that familiar with his race. I don't live in that district. (I do find it strange that no Democrat qualified for the race.). My commentary will be limited on that race. I would like to see Lee Yancey get elected as State Senator in District 20 (Again, no Democrat qualified for that race.). Lee is an individual of impeccable integrity and has been a lobbyist for the Christian Action Commission of the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board. He would be ideal as a State Senator for people who want a fighter and is one of the "little guys." And in the PSC--Central race, I hope Pearl Mayor Jimmy Foster is the GOP nominee and is elected in November. He's done a good job as mayor. His opponent, Charles Barbour, has been a county supervisor in Hinds County and has done a poor job. Talk radio has had fun blasting four of the five supervisors, Barbour being one of them.

May is just a day away. I better get out my old diaries and inform you what a louse Phil Bryant really is. It'll be a fun three months.

You do not know me? That is ok because you are not alone. That is changing one visit at a time but for now all you need to know is that I owe no political favors.

I am looking forward to your take on the Lt. Gov. race.

I strongly disagree with you concerning Phil Bryant. Having known both candidates for my entire life, I can attest that they are both extremely intelligent men.
Phil is just as conservative as his opponent. Maybe you should look into Phil's record as State Auditor and as a former State House member. It is evident that Phil has extremely conservative credentials. Phil authored a tax cut while in the House and as State Auditor has striven to ensure that illegal immigration and corruption are not widespread in Mississippi.
The main difference in the two candidates is their personalities. Charlie is a cold man who went to Harvard Law School. Phil is a good-ole-boy who was the first in his family to graduate from college.
Having known these men for so long and having heard them speak on several occasions, I can attest that Phil Bryant is not just the best but the only choice for Mississippi's next Lt. Governor.

Charlie could not have done this. I wish he would get back on Gallo and show him that he didn't do anything unethical!!!

Regarding the Chancery Clerk race...I know Larry Swales very even comment that he has a large ego, well he can...he has helped make Rankin County a better place to live not only the reservoir area but everywhere. The previous seats in the Board of Supervisors needed a change and he helped change it for the better. Why should he be frowned upon because he lives at the reservoir,do you think when he decided to make his home out in the area in the early 70's when it was first developed he thought he should because people with egos should live out here? Stereotyping is what you are doing. I know for a fact that there are many "buddies" as you call them that he has not done favors for.

Mitch and Larry are both honest good men. I do not mind you supporting Mitch but maybe you should know more about Larry Swales before you critcize. He is a fair, honest, christian man and a wonderful father and grandfather...I know.
