CLARION LEDGER – Gov. Bryant helping raise money for Michael Watson’s secretary of state campaign a year outGov. Phil Bryant is helping fellow Republican Sen. Michael Watson raise money for a run for secretary of state next year, an invitation from Watson’s campaign shows.
It’s somewhat unusual for a governor to keynote such a fundraiser that far down ticket and this far out from elections and before party nominees have been chosen in primaries.
Watson, 40, serving in the state Senate since 2008, has long been considered a contender for higher office. He was strongly urged by GOP leaders to run for Congress in 2010, but didn’t because of the birth of one of his three daughters.
Watson, of Pascagoula, is one of only a few people who have formally announced candidacy for races in next year’s statewide elections. He’s seeking to replace Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, who has said he will seek a higher office next year, but hasn’t officially said which one. Hosemann is widely believed to be set on a run for the lieutenant governor’s office, which will be open next year.
